2020 ROE Student Photo Contest: Geneva’s ‘Red Bombs And a Tire’ Wins Nature-Themed Week 1!

Welcome to Week 1 of the Kane County Regional Office of Education’s Student Photography Contest! This year we’re back with a twist: themed weeks!

Here at the ROE, we want to thank all the photography teachers for inspiring creativity in the students and for helping us coordinate this contest. Without you, it would not be possible!

In Week 1, we received 229 submissions from 12 schools in our competition for the best nature photo. We were blown away with the entries and had a hard time narrowing in on the winners. Here are our top 10!

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