BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina selected Janice Anderson, Townville, S.C., as the August winner of its Facebook-based healthy activity photo competition. The contest continues in September with “favorite summer memories” as the focus for photo entries.
Anderson was selected at random for a photo of her grandchildren shag dancing. The theme for the month was “Show us your best move” and the prize was an all-inclusive VIP package to the South Carolina Jazz Festival in Cheraw, S.C.
