Jeffersontown, KY – Kentucky Youth Advocates is seeking new photographs of Kentucky children and youth to use in the 2012 Kentucky KIDS COUNT County Data Book. The annual KIDS COUNT book documents the condition of children in Kentucky over time, and photos of children – from infants to teenagers – are used to help illustrate the publication. Photos that showcase Kentucky children and youth in settings representative of Kentucky, including diversity in terms of age, race, ethnicity, and ability are being requested. This year’s KIDS COUNT book will especially need photos relevant to the topic of education – everything from early childhood education to transitioning into college. If you have photos that you would like to submit for consideration, please note the following instructions:

If a photo release form is not sent in at the same time as the photos, then the following information must be provided with the photos so we can keep track of submissions and ensure we secure a release form before using the images:

 Names of subjects in photo(s)

 Mailing address

 Telephone number
