HESPERIA — There were many great photos submitted to the “Hesperia, The Way I See It” photo contest sponsored by the Hesperia Community Library and the Friends of the Library.

People shared photos of their dogs and frogs, local lakes, the skies and the woods. There were categories for students and adults with prizes awarded in each category. There was also a chance for the public to vote for their favorite.

The judge commented on the great selection representing Hesperia and the surrounding community. Winners in the adult category were: Heather Fessenden, first place; Scott Fessenden, second place; Justin Riley, third place; and Carl Nielsen, popular vote. Student winners were: Hailey Meyette, first place; Mayli Cardiff, second place; Sky Milner, third place; and Olivia VanAvery, popular vote.
