Scenes from the 20th Senatorial District
2016 Photo Contest

Pennsylvania’s 20th Senatorial District spans from the Delaware River in the east to the Endless Mountains in the west with unique communities dotting the landscape in between.
From rolling farms to bustling Main Streets, picturesque vistas throughout the many boroughs and townships that make up the district are a photographer’s dream.   Residents are proud of the historic structures, natural beauty, events and people that make their towns special.
Whether it’s that historic church you drive by each day or an eagle swooping down for a fish in the river, the annual Memorial Day parade or a school event, Senator Baker wants you to share the sights and scenes from your area with your 20th District neighbors.
