MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is asking Vermonters to share their best photographs of Vermont since Tropical Storm Irene to celebrate the state's recovery.
Shumlin and the Department of Tourism have launched a photo contest called "Build Up Vermont."
People will be allowed to post their pictures, view others and vote for their favorite shot on the web site www.BuildUpVT.com.
The winner of the contest will get free tickets to see Vermont musician Grace Potter perform at the Grand Point North Festival at Burlington's Waterfront Park in September.
Shumlin says what better way to reflect the hard work and remarkable spirit of Vermonters than by promoting images of the progress the state has made in the last 11 months.
