Standard seeks your top photos from last 20 years
2020 Vision-1.jpg
Dennis Kronlage, 70, is chairman of the board of the Warren County Senior Center. One of the most prolific memories Kronlage has experienced in the last 20 years is surviving Hurricane Katrina while living in New Orleans. “I evacuated, but when I came back after the storm, the house I owned was damaged but still standing. The community came together and helped one another.” Kronlage has been living in Warren County since 2006, and has been the chairman of the board twice.

A picture’s worth 1,000 words, or 20 years in this case, as the Southern Standard is holding a photo contest online with participants winning $200 in prizes by submitting a photo embodying a special memory since the start of the new millennium. 

The 2020 Vision photo contest began Friday, Feb. 21. The photo which receives the most online votes will be the winner of $200 worth of prizes. Individuals who vote will be entered into a weekly drawing for a free three-month online subscription to the Standard. Visit and click on “2020 Vision” to enter or vote. 

Although the 2020 Vision contest will be focusing on photos, we asked individuals at the Senior Center to use a marker and poster board instead of a camera to express a few of their greatest memories over the past 20 years. 

If you're interested in winning a multitude of prizes and entering photos that depict your favorite memories since 2000, visit The 2020 Vision photo contest will last throughout March. Everyone who votes online will also have a chance of winning a prize by being entered into a drawing for a free three-month online subscription to the Standard.
