Congratulations to Garrison Reekers, the winner of the third annual Pannier Graphics Photo Contest!
Garrison’s photo of two Triangular Kiosks with Fiberglass Embedded panels is located in the prairie park in Belle Plaine, Iowa. “The park was made possible by the work of the Belle Plaine Partners for Beautification, a group of volunteers that help beautify our little town,” said Reekers. The panels are visible from the highway and are located close to the entrance and pavilion of the park. They help educate about the prairie and local community.
Placing second was Mary -Jo DeVinney’s photo of a Cantilevered Exhibit Base with a Fiberglass Embedded panel was taken in front of the Victorian House on the campus of Pennsylvania College of Technology.
