JEFFERSON

By a vote by those attending the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival recently, Marlene Bell of Big Sandy, Texas, was named the grand-prize winner of the Wisconsin Sheep Breeders Cooperative’s annual photo contest.

Bell, whose photograph, "What Did You Say?", captured two virtually identical Horned Dorsets standing side-by-side, also topped the contest’s Just Lambs category.

As grand prize winner, Bell won a gift card for photo services from Woodman’s Markets, plus she received a cash prize from WSBC for being a class winner.

Linda Peeters of Hortonville, placed second in the Just Lambs class, followed in order by Diane Christenson of Chippewa Falls, Hannah Taylor of Arlington, LeeAnne Richert of Cable and Jessica Taylor of Arlington.

"Baah, Summer’s Almost Over!", a photo by l8-year-old Emily Petzel of Centuria, received the most votes in the Photo Taken by Youth category. Petzel received an Andis Model 68000 Heavy Duty Sheep Shears, with a retail value of $380, awarded by Blain’s Farm & Fleet.

In second through sixth place were Cosette Veeder-Shave, Hyde Park, N., age 11; Blake Johnson, Boyd, 12; Rachel Gierach, Mequon, 15; Hannah Taylor, 15; and Brianna Jones, Big Bend, 12.

The County Today presented a cash prize to the winner of the Scenic Photo category, Chellney Newhouse of State Center, Iowa. Newhouse’s photo was entitled "Sunrise."

Photographs by Diane Christenson placed second, fourth and sixth in the class, while Michelle Mohr McMillen of Amity, OR, placed third and Jessica Bennett of Clinton placed fifth.

Wisconsin State Farmer presented a cash prize to Gale Yaeger of Cambridge, the winner of the Any Other Sheep or Wool Photo category. Yaeger’s photograph was entitled "Border Collie in Training: Is It My Turn Yet?"

A photograph by Jaeger also placed fourth in the class, and photographs by LeeAnne Richert won both second and fifth places. Pam Sheahan of Delavan took third place in the class, and Diane Christenson placed sixth.

Pat Wiford of Wapakoneta, Ohio, won the Kids and Sheep category with a photo called "Let Me Give Ewe A Kiss." Wiford received a cash prize from WSBC for being a class winner.

In second through sixth place were Bonnie Juarez, Clinton; Debbie Petzel, Centuria; Chellney Newhouse; Cindy Rodeback, Iola; and Hannah Taylor.

This year marks the first time Blain’s Farm & Fleet and Wisconsin State Farmer have served as contest sponsors.

In addition to prizes to the grand-prize winner and class winners, each of the finalist photos were awarded premiums based on the number of contest entries.

"Overall participation in this year’s contest more than doubled over the two previous years, plus we saw a significant increase in entries in the Youth class," said Jane Metcalf, photo contest chairman. "The quality of the photos entered seems to improve every year, and the judges had a challenging job to select the finalist photos."

A panel of judges narrowed the contest entries to the top six in each category, and visitors to the Festival were asked to cast their votes for their favorite photo in each of five categories.
