Greencastle student wins Indiana 4-H Foundation photography award

Tuesday, December 9, 2008

Sara Culler was awarded champion and grand champion status at the 4-H county fair for a photograph of her niece, who was one week old at the time. That photo, a black and white salon, went on to receive the Indiana 4-H Foundation photography award at state fair.

Her reward is the honor of having her picture hang in the Indiana 4-H Foundation office in Indianapolis for one year.

Culler won reserve champion last year at county fair in photography.

"I love taking pictures," said Culler.

She has been involved in photography for a while, but the past few years her interest has grown. Her mother, Marilyn Culler, is a professional photographer and gives her photography suggestions when she asks. She also gains ideas from others in photography 4-H projects.

"I like seeing what others do in photography," she explained.

Culler has completed eight years of 4-H and takes drawing, painting and sheep projects.

The sheep are kept on a farm where her father, Bill Culler, resides. On that same farm, there is one alpaca, George, and rabbits. She doesn't take responsibility for naming George.

Aside from 4-H, Culler attends Greencastle High School where she is a junior. Extra-curricular activities of cross country, swimming and track keep her busy. She has been involved in sports since middle school.

Culler's future plans include college at University of Indianapolis, University of Evansville or Indiana University Purdue University in Indianapolis. She would like to major in physical therapy and possibly specialize in sport injuries.

"I love helping people," she said about choosing a career.

In addition to helping others, she hopes to minor in photography and do freelance work.

Congratulations Sara, It is a great picture!

Two or three years ago I saw a picture at the 4-H exhibit at the fair with a boy sitting next to a chicken, or rooster. My wife & I really liked it. Would anyone know who shot it? We always wondered if it was possible to get a copy?

Any help would be appreciated.
