Photo Contest: Show Us Your Patch of Michigan and Win, Week 10!

Got a cool Michigan picture? Week 10 of our photo contest is here. Show us your Michigan pride in photos from anywhere in the state and you could win cool prizes.

Got a cool pic of your summer vacation or snowy vista? Enter the Your Patch of Michigan photo contest this summer!

You don't need to be a professional photographer to win. The single qualification for photos you submit is that they say "Michigan." If it oozes "Michigan," it qualifies.

Each weekly winner will earn a prize, and we're in week 10. 

This week's prize is coffee and dessert, in the form of two gift cards valued at $25 each: one for Biggby Coffee and the other for Just Baked.

Last week, more than 126 photos were submitted to the contest, showing off some of what is the best Michigan has to offer – and more importantly, what Michigan means to each person. Previous winners can be viewed 

After Labor Day, we'll pick a grand prize winner from all of the weekly winners.

The grand prize winner will receive a certificate for a two-night stay at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island (to be used before Oct. 31, 2013, and blackout dates and other restrictions may apply). The approximate retail value of the Grand Prize is $600.
