 News Release

Adopt-a-Lake program requests photograph submissions for 2021 calendar

RELEASE DATE: October 1, 2020

Tavares – As part of Keep Lake Beautiful’s (KLB) ongoing mission for engagement to beautify Lake County, KLB encourages residents to participate in the Lake County Adopt-a-Lake Program 2021 Calendar Contest. The calendar contest, now in its 12th year, is requesting photographs of Lake County lakes for its 2021 Adopt-a-Lake Calendar. The top 14 photographs, as chosen by a panel of volunteers, will be published in the 2021 calendar.

Once the semi-finalists are selected, online voting will be opened to the public. The top-scoring picture will receive the coveted cover spot.

All photos submitted must be of a Lake County named waterbody and must depict water somewhere in the photo. Each photo must also be shot in landscape (horizontal) mode. Entries are limited to five photos per person and should include the name of the photographer and the body of water pictured. A photo release form will be required if selected as a semi-finalist.

To submit a photo, e-mail [email protected], bring a CD to the Water Resource Management Laboratory at 12923 County Landfill Road, Tavares, or mail a CD to Adopt-a-Lake Program, Attn: Cathie Catasus, P.O. Box 7800, Tavares, FL 32778.

The deadline to submit entries is Friday, Oct. 23.

The Adopt-a-Lake calendar will be available at the Water Resource Management Laboratory at the Lake County Public Works Department for a suggested donation of $5, with proceeds benefiting the Adopt-a-Lake Program.

The Lake County Adopt-a-Lake Program encourages local civic organizations, individuals, and fraternal and business groups to adopt a segment of a lake’s shoreline. It is comprised of three separate components, including water quality monitoring, public education and pollution prevention, and volunteers can elect which components of the program best fit their desired level of participation.  

The Keep Lake Beautiful (KLB) program works closely with the Adopt-a-Lake Program to keep Lake County beautiful by keeping litter out of our lakes. KLB seeks to lead the way to a cleaner and more beautiful Lake County by engaging residents and encouraging community participation. KLB is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s leading nonprofit agency that focuses on building and maintaining vibrant communities.
