A young Lyndon photographer has his talent on display after winning first place in his age division in an annual photography contest sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society. Ethan Kneisler, 11, of Lyndon, was 1 of 24 students that were selected to have their photograph showcased by KHS.

In honor of Kansas’ birthday, KHS annually sponsors a photograph contest for student photographers in first through 12th grade across the state. This year, the photo assignment was to capture an image showing “Everyday Life in Kansas”.

Ethan submitted a photo of cattle eating from a feed bunk, taken at his grandparents’ farm at Westmoreland. Ethan’s photo, Time for Supper, was on display at the Kansas Capitol Visitor Center Jan. 28-Feb. 3, 2017.

All together there were 437 entries from students from across the state. For his award winning photograph, Ethan was given an iPad, which was made possible by a variety of sponsors.

Ethan’s photo can be viewed in the photo montage which was developed by the Historical Society or at:
