This summer’s vacation photo contest reflected the year. Families stayed close to home or traveled within the United States. Some went to such exotic places as Mt. Kiliminjaro and North Dakota, while others enjoyed the scenic beauty of Yellowstone and the Oregon Coast. In keeping with COVID-19 rules, vacationers wore masks unless they were with close family or in isolated spots away from others.

The winner of this year’s contest is Sarah Howland, a quality specialist with APP. Her photo perfectly mirrored the COVID-19 summer. Wearing an Asante shirt, she stands alone, overlooking Montana’s Glacier National Park. Despite the overcast sky and clouds covering the mountain, the park’s beauty still shines through. Howland wins a $50 gift card!
