Calendar Request Information
Lake Country Power members can order their complimentary 2020 Co-op Calendar by filling out the request form on this page. Please allow up to three weeks for shipping. Due to the popularity of the contest in recent years, members are limited to one calendar per membership, not to be confused with the number of accounts per member. Supplies are limited and calendar is distributed on a first come, first served basis.
About The Calendar
The 12 images selected for the LCP Co-op Calendar are photos taken by cooperative members. Hundreds of photos were submitted, and in the process put into four seasonal categories for voting purposes — spring, summer, fall, winter. The winners were selected by votes/"Likes" received during a contest held on the Lake Country Power Facebook page in September 2019.
2021 Co-op calendar contest seeking entries
The calendar will showcase the photography talents of LCP’s membership.
A panel of judges will select the winning photos in "round one" of the judging process. During "round two," members will select the finalists through a contest on LCP's Facebook page.
Winners will receive a $20 credit on their electric bill and will be notified in October.
Members have until 11:59 p.m. on August 2 to submit their beautiful scenic entries for the 2021 co-op calendar. Winners will receive a $20 credit on their electric bill and will be notified in October.
Your photography should be scenic, capturing the beauty of northern Minnesota's four seasons. The photos are not required to include power lines but may if you choose.
