2017-18 Photo Contest

A chance encounter in a church in Nicaragua. A brief glimpse of Brazilian politics. The intricate beginnings of a ceremonial fire. No matter where they studied, each of the five students who won prizes in the 2017-18 Off-Campus Study Photo Contest captured powerful images during their time off-campus.

We'd like to thank all 37 students who submitted a total of 108 entries to the 2017-18 Off-Campus Study Photo Contest. While judges awarded four cash prizes to the entries that most creatively represented cross-cultural learning, Facebook fans voted for their favorite entries for the Fans' Choice Award. The winner of the Fan's Choice entry earned 128 likes.
