National Rural Health Day Photo Contest

Do you love rural, health, or any combination of the two? Then share it with us! The Center for Rural Health (CRH), in partnership with the North Dakota Rural Health Association is proud to present the 12th annual National Rural Health Day Photo Contest.

We look forward to receiving photo submissions every year, and work to use the images as great representations of rural life and community, through the work of CRH.

What is the Photo Contest?

The National Rural Health Day photo contest is a fun way to not only show what rural health means to you, but a great way to engage in rural communities and share that experience with others. We encourage you to be creative, have fun, and show everyone the power of rural!
