BYU Kennedy Center lists winners of 2002 Photo Contest

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*~*.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
