Tidewater Trader April 28, 2021 Page 32 2021 Maryland Natural Resource Photo Contest The 18 th Annual Maryland Department of Natural Resources Photo Contest runs now through August 5 th . All winners will be featured in the department’s 2022 wall calendar and published in the Maryland Natural Resource magazine. All entries must be submitted online. Enter now for your chance to win cash, state parks passports, magazine subscriptions, and other terrific prizes! The four contest categories are seasonal: winter, spring, summer, and fall. First, second, and third place winners are selected for each seasonal category. As this is a natural resources-focused contest, the department suggests you follow the following guidelines when selecting a subject matter: Birds, Insects, Flora, Recreation, Scenic Landscapes, Weather and Wonder, and Wildlife. Please re- member that photos that highlight native species (plants, animals, insects) will be given preference in selection. In addition to the winners chosen by the department there will be a “Fan Favor- ite” selected by popular vote on Facebook. The photo with the most “likes” will also be printed in the calendar and magazine. An entry fee of $10 for up to three photos and $3 for each additional entry must be paid with your submission. The number of photos you can submit is unlim- ited, and all photos must be original. All photos must be landscape in orienta- tion, and photos must be clear, with the highest resolution possible. Winning entries are printed in a standard-size wall calendar edge-to-edge at 11 inches by 8.5 inches. Photos must be named correctly to enter. Please name photos in a Subject, Title by Name format (example: Flora Sunflowers in Bloom by John Smith.jpg). Photographers from any state may participate, but all photos must be taken in Maryland. The department will make selections based on the quality, composi- tion, content, originality, creativity, and mass appeal. Decisions are final and in sole and absolute discretion of the department. Winners will be notified in September before the announcement is made on their website, newsroom and social media outlets. The Grand Prize Winner (Overall) will take home $500, a one-year Maryland State Park Passport, a two-year sub- scription to the Maryland Natural Resource magazine, five copies of the 2022 calendar, and their image on the cover.

CURRIED CHICKEN SALAD Meat from 1 Rotisserie Chicken, skin discarded, chopped into bite size pieces (save bones for stock) 1/2 Cup Sliced Red or Green Grapes, sliced in halves 1/4 Cup or More Toasted Almond Slivers 1 Bunch Green Onions, finely chopped, reserve green part for garnish 2 Ribs Celery, minced Dressing: Juice of One Lemon • 2 Tsp Curry Powder 1/4 to 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise • Salt and Pepper to Taste Combine chicken, grapes, almond sliver, green onions and celery and toss together. Combine dressing ingredients, mix together and allow them to mingle. Adjust seasonings to taste. Gradually mix in with the chicken mixture to desired consistency; you don’t want your chicken salad dripping in mayonnaise. Use just enough to coat the meat and hold the salad together. Garnish with reserved green onions and more grapes if desired. Enjoy on lettuce, in a pita pocket, or with crackers. Works well with turkey, too.
