We're excited to announce the opening of PEC's 6th Annual Photo Contest! What makes this contest special is seeing all of the beautiful and interesting photos come from Virginia's Piedmont - the place many of us call home. For the second year, we've added a youth category. Read below for more contest details, and be sure to enter your photos by September 30, 2015 for a chance to win!
