It takes a long time to add and format the photos for each of these model contest gallery pages. To get the new gatewaynmra.org website online a month or more earlier, the Division officers decided to initially publish the model contest pages without the photos, and to add them over time. For those with an immediate need to view small photos of the winning entries for this contest, you may view a pdf of the old webpage for this contest page.
