Winning Entry In What The Delaware River Means Contest Captures The Beauty Of The River, New Contest Opens

The Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed Friday announced the winner of the What The Delaware River Means Beauty Contest-- Karen Harmon for her photo of the Frenchtown- Uhlerstown Bridge.
“I’m very excited, I’ve never won a contest before – or entered one,” Karen laughed. Karen lives in Frenchtown, New Jersey, just a short walk from the Delaware River and the Frenchtown-Uhlerstown Bridge.
As Karen describes, the photo was taken during a perfect, snowy, and quiet evening, with no one else around – just her and the Delaware.
Karen is an amateur photographer who has enjoyed the Delaware’s beauty since moving to the area in the early ‘90s and has made the River the subject of hundreds of her photographs.
“It's just gorgeous... I love looking at it, I love playing in it,” Karen reflects. The way Karen is captured by the Delaware’s natural beauty makes it fitting that Karen would win the Delaware River Means Beauty contest.
New Contest Running
The Delaware River Means campaign wants to know “What does the Delaware River mean to you?” The answer to this is explored, as we wrote about previously, through four separate contests: Fun, Beauty, Togetherness, and History.
This is how it works: enter your photo and story, share your entry on social media, and if your entry gets the most votes, you win a special prize for that contest.
There are still two contests to go before the campaign ends: Togetherness and History. Winners of each of the four contests are also entered into a drawing for the grand prize of a stand-up paddle board.
The Delaware River is a source of fun, beauty, togetherness, and history for those within the watershed and beyond. You can now enter your photo and story to the Delaware River Means “Togetherness” contest and voting has also officially begun.
Your photo and story about how the Delaware River Watershed has brought people together could you win a Marmot Halo tent. This tent holds up to 6 people and is perfect for families, friends, and anyone who wants to spend some time together in the great outdoors.
Keep the spirit of togetherness alive by sharing your memories on the Delaware River Means website. All entries in the Togetherness contest will also be entered to win the grand prize: a stand-up paddleboard package!
Voting on winners will June 19 and winners will be announced June 20.
