The Schenectady Smiles Photo Contest was launched to capture and celebrate our community. Submissions were divided into in five categories--Diversity (people, art, culture, food); Community Vitality (walkable, vibrant places; transportation, neighborhood pride);
Natural Environment (lakes, rivers, preserves, parks, sky, wildlife); Architecture/Urban Design (plazas, buildings, neighborhoods, boulevards); and Businesses & Organizations (businesses, non-profits, schools, clubs). A committee of volunteers looked at every photo and chose the first and second place winners for each category and you voted for the People’s Choice award. Here are the winners!
