It wasn’t so long ago the Harrison Lake lagoon fountain sprung up from the depths, and the village is taking some time to celebrate.

The Village of Harrison Hot Springs recently announced the Lagoon Fountain Photo Contest, looking for feature shots of the Lagoon Fountain to display on the main pages of the village website and other publications. The winner will also receive a Village of Harrison Hot Springs branded water bottle.

The photos must meet the following specifications:

Preferred file size is 1 MB for supporting shots and 3 MB for feature shots with a minimum of 300 DPI.

Photographers under the age of 18 must have letter signed by a parent or legal guardian to participate.

The deadline for submissions is Dec. 17.

The Harrison Lagoon Fountain was installed in November as part of the Lagoon Area Master Plan that went before the public in a consultation session and open house last October. The fountain – rigged with lights to illuminate at night – is meant not only to improve the aesthetic experience of the lagoon during the summer but as an identifying landmark in the off season and as a way to aerate and improve the quality of the lagoon’s water.
