The Columbiana Area Chamber of Commerce is once again sponsoring the annual photo contest during the Columbiana Street Fair, Sept. 6-8.
Entry forms are available at the Chamber office downstairs at Sky Bank on South Main Street, or at local businesses.
Categories for adult photographers include open, animal and people. Children 13 and under may also submit photographs they have taken.
Prizes awarded to adults in each category will be $25 for first place, $15 for second place. First and second places also get a plaque and a ribbon. Third place will receive a ribbon only.
Children's winners will receive a gift basket for first place and an unspecified gift for second place. First-, second- and third-place winners will receive ribbons.
The people's choice winner will receive a $50 savings bond.
Access: Internet surfers can now access the Web to learn more about the Salem Community Center being built.
The center announced recently that a Web site has been created that eventually will feature progress photos of the $9 million structure's construction, which began several weeks ago.
Right now, you can sign onto the page and leave your e-mail address so you can be notified of developments concerning the facility.
Also exhibited on the Web page are floor plans and an architect's rendering of the 50,000-square-foot building, which is being constructed along North Ellsworth Avenue on Salem's north side.
The facility is expected to open in fall 2002.
The Web site's address is salemcommunitycenter.com.
