Winners have been announced for the 6th Annual 69th District Photo Challenge Contest sponsored by State Representative Joe Sosnowski, R-Rockford. The contest is offered each year to give Stateline area residents an opportunity to share their interest in photography with the public. Photo submissions can be of nature, architecture, or daily life in Illinois’ 69th District, which includes portions of Boone and Winnebago Counties.

Winners have their photos displayed in Springfield for one year at Representative Sosnowski’s office in the Capitol Complex. This year’s winners are Gary Acaley of Roscoe (horse and barn); Bryan Holliday of Rockford (Blackhawk Springs Forest Preserve); and David Olson of Rockford (Cardinal):
