Pleasant Grove City Employee Photo Contest Information
The idea of a Pleasant Grove City Employee Photo Contest began with a simple discussion of how to make the training room in the Police Department a little more appealing and interesting by hanging some pictures on the walls. It was brought up by Chief Tom Paul, Chief of Police at that time, that it would be great to see some photos that officers and employees of the Police Department take in the course of their work day and display them instead of purchasing pictures.
That idea evolved into many interesting photos being turned in by employees of the police department and it became somewhat difficult to decide which photos to display in the training room. It was recommended that we have the Police Department vote on the photos they liked the best and those are the ones that would be displayed.
After a couple of years of doing this, it became evident that there are many good photographers within not only the Police Department, but within all the departments of the city. All employees were invited to participate in the Pleasant Grove City Employee Photo Contest. A set of guidelines were written and distributed to all employees.
Each month the photo entries were sent out via email to all employees to vote on their one favorite photo and the winner of each month was recognized. This has been a fun and creative way to interact with each department within the City and has been the source of some very good photos that have been kept for many years.
