The Yearbook Photo Contest has ended and click here to see the winning photos. Many photos were submitted and thanks go out to all the entrants and to the judging panel. It was a difficult decision. The photos shown are by the two first place recipients.
For your information, judging criteria used were that the photos should represent the ASP students' integration in the WU and Salem community, and also represent their healthy lifestyle. Also, the lighting and quality of the photos were also considered.
There were two Bearcat (first place) winners: Rinku Yanagi (ASP student) and Kendrick Arakaki (TIUA Staff). They will each receive a $50 Compass Card.
There were four Dolphin (second place) winners: Rinku Yanagi--2 awards and Kendrick Arakaki--2 awards. They will each receive a $25 Compass Card per award.
There were ten Squirrel (third place) winners: Rinku Yanagi--2 awards, Donald Swen (WU student)--2 awards, John Patzer (tomodachi host), Trisha Duman (tomodachi host)--2 awards, Kendrick Arakaki--3 awards, and Erin Good Audley (tomodachi host). They will each receive a $10 Compass Card per award.
Again, thanks to all the contestants!
