As Vero Beach turns 100 with a year- long calendar of events, a well-known lo- cal medical practice, Florida Eye Institute, is also on the cusp of a major anniversary in the year 2020.

To commemorate Vero’s centennial and celebrate 35 years of vision within the community, Florida Eye Institute has un- veiled a photo contest called My 2020 Experience.

“A photo contest seemed the perfect way to support the Centennial while sharing our community’s vision of this special celebration of Vero Beach. We encourage everyone to share all that they see during the entire yearlong celebration.”

A special website,, was crafted expressly for the contest. Entries are divided into months to coincide with the series of year- long activities. “Direct links to the Vero Beach 100 Calendar of Events are highlighted throughout our site to help people plan their activities and see all there is to experience during this awesome year,” continues Green. “Visit and share your vision of all things Centennial!”

The public can upload their digital photos directly to the site. A winning pho- to will be selected each month. Winners will receive a gift card valued at $50.

At the conclusion of Vero’s year long Centennial Celebration in October 2019 a Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the winning monthly entries. Grand Prize will be $250 cash.
