MARYVILLE, Mo. — Nodaway County Economic Development, in cooperation with the Greater Maryville Chamber of Commerce, will be awarding $50 in Chamber Bucks to a person who submits a photo of Nodaway County to the NCED Facebook page and receives the highest number of likes and shares.

The contest is currently underway and will be open to entries through June 21.

“NCED is looking for images that capture the character and beauty of northwest Missouri,” according to a Wednesday morning press release.

Photographers are encouraged to consider “old barns, sunsets/sunrises, animals, nature, sky pictures, kids playing baseball, or anything you want it to be.”

According to the release, “photographs taken in any format an on any photographic tool will be accepted as long as they are appropriate.”

We hope this photo contest will encourage locals to look at the beauty and joy surrounding our great county. We hope that the next time someone sees a beautiful sunset, a child laughing or a deer bounding they will solidify that memory and moment and share with the rest of the county. Contestants have the opportunity to have their photos used in NCED’s efforts to promote the community.” NCED Executive Director Josh McKim said.

“The subject matter of the image could range from a simple shot that speaks to our rural heritage or to the quality of life we enjoy in Nodaway County.”

According to the release, entries will be judged solely on the number of like and shares the Facebook post receives.
