ROE Photo Contest Week 1: Central High School Student Captures 'Rustic Form'

ROE Photo Contest Week 1: Central High School Student Captures ‘Rustic Form’

Welcome to Week 1 of the ROE’s Student Photography Contest!

The ROE is grateful for all of the amazing photography teachers in Kane County for their help with coordinating this effort and to the students for submitting their creative photography to get this contest off the ground running.

In Week 1, we received 234 submissions from 12 schools — a number we think might be the highest ever. We love seeing the the contest grow in size, and are already looking forward to seeing Week 2 photos!

If you are a high school student or teacher who would like to submit photos for next week, please contact Matt Muntner at the Kane County Regional Office of Education.
