Study Away Photo Contest
These are the winning photographs from our fall 2008 GEO photo contest. Our office holds this contest each semester to give students who have just returned from their study away destinations a chance to share their experience with the campus community.
The contest consists of four categories: Academics, Landscape, KSC Students Away, and Culture. Cash prizes of $50 are awarded to the category winners and a $100 cash prize goes to the grand prize winner.
Photos are displayed and voted on in the Lloyd P. Young Student Center first floor. Voting is open to anyone with or without KSC affiliation and lasts for a week before the votes are tallied and posted. After the contest the photos are placed in a long term display case on the Student Center third floor.
