For more than a decade, amateur and professional photographers have helped Rural Health Education and Services showcase the beauty found in our beloved Kansas communities. These photos have led us to the far corners of the State, transported us to unique landmarks, introduced us to new friends and neighbors, and helped us rediscover the beauty in our own backyards. Most importantly, they have helped us promote the rich history and beauty of Kansas to our future health care providers.

We are excited to partner with Kansas Country Living magazine for the third year in a row. Kansas Country Living magazine carries out the mission of the state's 27 distribution electric cooperatives and three generation and transmission co-ops to help improve the quality of life of their consumer-members. The monthly magazine, with a circulation of approximately 132,000, reflects the lifestyles and cultures of rural, suburban, and small-town Kansas and covers topics that impact rural electrification and the rural way of life.

The Kansas Country Living editorial team will choose from all of the entries a $100 grand-prize winning photograph that will be featured on the January 2022 cover of the magazine. Learn more
