PEOPLE & PETS | Day 5 “Fun at Home” Photo Contest Challenge

PEOPLE & PETS | Day 5 “Fun at Home” Photo Contest Challenge

We’re down to the final challenge in our 5-day “Fun at Home” photo contest for the first distance learning week in the Barrington 220 School District. The final challenge might be our favorite. We have another $100 in Heinen’s gift cards as our prize and we’re giving you through this weekend to submit your entries. We’ll announce the winner or winners on Monday, March 30th.

Since we’ve all made it though the first week of distance learning, our final challenge is titled PEOPLE & PETS! Think back to all of the favorite things you found to do at home this week and all of the photos you’ve captured. Is there someone who you loved spending a little extra time with? Did your mom, dad, brother, sister, pet or children make you smile this week? Snap a photo of that person, people or pet for a chance to win. If they don’t want their picture taken? Feel free to make them a mask or costume from things you have around the house and take their picture in disguise. Raid the dress-up chest, pull out pieces from past Halloween costumes. Have fun because anything goes and thanks for sharing!

Here’s one entry we’ve already received from a long-time Barrington resident whose favorite part of this week was visiting her grandkids in the city. We’re letting the simple things make us smile as the state of Illinois issues a Shelter at Home order to stop the spread of coronavirus.


Stay healthy and THANK YOU for helping make this week more fun by playing along. We’ll be watching for your entries!

From the Community

“So, how can we humanize who we are addressing and make sure that people have proper access to mental health care? How can we use what we know to change how we talk about mental health? How can changing the narrative impact the reality?

Open dialogue is only helpful if we can share the truth. We can start talking about the reality of depression as it is, a legitimate medical condition that causes sadness, loss of interest and potentially feeling as if life is not worth living. It is a condition, not a weakness, that typically requires long-term mental health treatment.”
