The summer heat finally seems to be fading, but summer vacation memories will live on in photos. Did you travel somewhere fun this summer? Share your images and enter The Star’s 2013 Summer Travel Photo Contest.
Send us your pictures taken during this summer travel season: Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day 2013. There are three categories:
• Local (Kansas and Missouri)
You can enter only one photo per category, so send us your absolute best.
Deadline for entries: 11:59 p.m. Oct. 6.
A first-place prize of $100 will be awarded in each of the three categories. Winning photos and some runners-up will be featured in an upcoming Star Magazine.
