ROE Photo Contest Week 6: St. Charles North Student Lights Up the Competition

Welcome to Week 6 of the Kane County Regional Office of Education’s Student Photography Contest!

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 6, we received 179 submissions from 11 schools in our competition for the best light photo. As always, the judges were so impressed with the quality of the photos, 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.

*Save the Date! The Annual Photo Contest Reception will be back this year at the Batavia Fine Arts Center. The reception will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2021. The reception will display the top 10 photos from each week, as well as having an award ceremony for the weekly winners.
