A Berrien Springs woman’s entry has been selected as the winner of Senator John Proos’ Pure Michigan Summer Photo Contest.
Molly Pate’s photo was that of a sail boat on the water at South Haven Beach at sunset.
The purpose of the contest was to give residents a way to showcase the outdoors and activities that make Michigan such a great place to live. More than 100 photos were submitted.
The second place winner was Madeline Gordon of Edwardsburg, for her photo, entitled “Sunflower Field.”
Taking third place was Randy Willis of Benton Harbor, for his photo, “Rainbow over Vineyard.”
Pate’s winning photo will receive a hanging ceremony in the Michigan Capitol.
