Calendar

Each year, The Oviedo Preservation Project (TOPP) publishes a miniature book in the form of a black and white wall calendar. This calendar is then distributed in Oviedo, Winter Springs, Geneva, and Chuluota to help people learn more about our community (and keep better track of their schedules :)

The calendar contains the winning photos from a contest held each summer, and we have had winners as young as 9, and participants range from kids with phone-cameras to professionals with fancy lenses. We challenge you to capture the theme on camera!
