Frick wins photo award
Vance Frick of Durham won first place in the professional category of the Kansas Department of Agriculture’s first-ever photo contest.
Frick’s picture of Marion County rancher Gordon Christianson at work herding cattle from horseback topped nearly 900 other entries from 126 youth, adult, employee, and professional photographers as a category winner.
Public viewers of photos submitted to the contest selected the winners on the agency’s Facebook page.
Winning photos will be used on the KDA’s website, in department publications, and on social media sites. Frick received a $100 gift card as his prize.
