In conjunction with its recent International Education Week, the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at Brigham Young University announced the winners of its Third Annual Photo Contest.
The contest was open to over 1,200 students who participated in one of the many BYU International Study Programs during the 2001-2002 academic year. Of the almost two hundred entries, prizes were given to the top three, but all the photos on display capture the essence of cultural diversity around the globe.
The first-place prize of $100 was awarded to Molly Jones' "Reflecting on 90 Years in the Same Village." A $75 second-place award was given to Angela Slauson's "Agua de la Casa," and the $50 third-place winner was Megan S. Morris' "Dancing With Hooks."
Thirteen additional photos received honorable mention, including works by Morris, Kristin Abboud, Vera Branson, Allyson Flake, Kristi Gustafson, Tara McIntosh, Anthony David Milewski, Jr., Jennifer Nations, Troy Smith and Maryanne Turner.
"We were excited to open this display during International Education Week. The photos depict the kind of international experiences the Kennedy Center works to make available for all BYU students," said Jeffrey F. Ringer, director of the Kennedy Center.
The award-winning photos will replace the current exhibit of student photography on display in the Herald R. Clark Building from the 2000-2001 Photo Contest sponsored by Kennedy Center Publications. They will also be archived on-line at *~*http://kennedy.byu.edu/photo*~*.
