Good Things Happen Photo Contest 2017

Submissions are no longer being accepted. Grand prize winners will be announced at our Celebration of Community Event on Friday, November 3. 

The Good Things Happening Photo Contest is a simple, fun opportunity for you to earn grant dollars for your favorite Black Hawk County nonprofit. With each photo, participants will have multiple opportunities to win!

How does it work?

Every Friday for four weeks we will be awarding one $500 grant to the most “liked” photo on our Facebook page of that week. This means participants have four chances to win $500 for their nonprofit of choice!

At the end of the contest, our panel of judges will gather to pick 1 grand prize winner of $5,000 and 3 runner up winners of $1,000. Grand prize winners will be announced at our Celebration of Community Event on November 3.

We are excited to uplift all the Good Things Happening in Black Hawk County while giving others a chance to give back!
