As part of the activities, the Utah Office of Primary Care and Rural Health is holding a photo contest. Entries — which must be original and taken during 2012 — should "communicate the concept of rural," and will be judged on creativity, originality, photo quality and overall appeal.

Submissions can be mailed to Owen Quinonez at oquinone@utah.gov, and winners will be selected on Friday, Nov. 16.
