Residents of Dodge City, Kinsley and Montezuma are among the winners of the Kansas Green Team program’s 2013 KansasGreenTeams.org Photo Contest.

Photographers throughout Kansas were invited to submit their photos celebrating the unique character of Kansas.

“These photos highlight the exceptional beauty that Kansas has to offer. We hope they will serve as inspiration for Kansans to do more for their environment in order to preserve our natural resources,” said John Mitchell, Director of the Division of Environment for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE).

The Kansas Green Team program was created in 2007 by KDHE as a way to make a difference by incorporating environmentally responsible practices into Kansans’ daily routines at work and at school.

All the winning photos are displayed on the KansasGreenTeams.org home page.
