PORTAGE | Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) named Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County-Portage Unit member Sanja Kirova the Midwest Regional winner in the ImageMakers National Photography Contest for her entry in “What Moves Me – Photo Essay”. As a winner in the Midwest region, Kirova was selected to move on to the national level of competition for the 10-12 year old age group.
