Special Announcement: “Caption This!” Contest

We’re recruiting our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram audiences to be our co-curators!

For the month of September, help us caption a series of photographs we’ll be posting! Each Tuesday and Thursday, starting September 6th, we will post a photograph from the Museum’s St. Catharines Standard collection and ask the public to contribute captions for what you think is going on in the picture!

Each participant will get 10% off discount in the gift shop during the month of October and be entered into a draw to win free admission for three people to our Open Late Finale Party on Tuesday, October 4th featuring local food truck, Ello Gov’na, and a live performance from local award winning musician Beth Moore!

Stay tuned for more on our Open Late Finale Party. In the mean time, get creative and get captioning!

We’ve posted a few photos below for practice! Try captioning these!
