Students all across the United States had the opportunity to submit photos to win a cash prize in the Walsworth Photo Contest. There were two students that entered from New Haven High School: junior Miranda Durbin and senior Michelle Bahena, both from the Yearbook class.
The students that entered had to be at least 13 years or older and attend a middle school, high school, or college. The photos had to be in by March 30.
There are different categories that the students could have entered their photos in. The categories are Academics, Club/Organization/Community Service, Feature/Portrait, Junior High/Middle School, Photo Illustration, School Spirit, Sports Action, Sports Reaction, Student Life, and Yearbook Life. For each category, there is a $100 VISA card prize for the winner.
“I entered five photos, and I wanted to enter because it's a really great opportunity to share my photography with other people,” said Miranda Durbin. “The photos I entered are mostly focused on one person, such as one that I entered of Diana Ribera while she is posing at the top of a cheer build. They tell their own story, and I think those stories need to be shared.”
Michelle Bahena was asked what she entered into the contest and why. Her reply was, “A shot of Abe playing the M&M game at leadership week because I liked the angle and his expression, and a shot of tug of war because of the students' expressions.”
Good luck to the photos that were entered into the Walsworth Photo Contest!
