Board of Community Relations sponsors photo contest

According to Linda Alvarado, director of the BCR, “the mission is to showcase how diverse and compassionate Toledo, Ohio is in just one photo. While many contests are individually focused, this contest is focused on the collective greatness of our City through positive and peaceful happenings that occur on a daily basis.”

Participants may submit one photo taken in the City of Toledo for the Compassionate Toledo photo contest. Individuals submitting a photo of, or for, a child under the age of 18 must be the parent or legal guardian of the child, or must obtain the parents’ or guardians’ permission and signature.
