Annual Photo Contest
We believe that life-experience is the best supplement to a college education. Our annual Boilers Abroad Photo Contest challenges students to capture the lessons learned overseas on film & video. This contest aims to encourage students to reflect on their experiences. They are invited to submit images that are unique, authentic, and thought-provoking. Finalists will be asked to submit a statement explaining the image and how that moment impacted them. Three prizes are given in each category. Good luck!
