    2. (SEPTEMBER: Break)
    3. AUGUST: Action: Objects in motion, things that move or help you move--be creative as you express movement or lapse in time through a photo.
    4. JULY: Landmarks: Park pavilions, splash pads, boat landings, or your local playground, we want to know the “sites to see” in your Saint Paul neighborhood park or recreation center!
    5. JUNE: Animals: From your personal pet, to Minnesota’s notorious boxelder bug, to the new baby zebra at Como Zoo, highlight what Saint Paul’s animals love about summer.
    6. MAY: New nature: Flowers, trees, and baby animals—they are all starting to pop up this time of year. Capture a moment where something new is starting to appear.
