Calvert County Public Schools is partnering with the Calvert County Heritage Committee to sponsor the Calvert County Heritage Annual Photo Competition. The contest supports student and community awareness of the historical and cultural heritage of Calvert County.

Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “This photo contest is an opportunity for students to explore the county’s history through art. We are happy to partner with the Heritage Committee to sponsor it.”
