Yearbook Photo Contest Winners Announced!

altThe photos are in, the judges have voted, and we are happy to announce the winners of the Yearbook Photo Contest!

A record-breaking 157 entries were accepted and it was very difficult to choose the award recipients.  Thank you so much to those who entered your pictures to the contest.  Also big thanks goes to our volunteer judges: Samuel Swanson, Tamara Smith, Russell Fauss, and Barby Dressler.

You will see these pictures in 2015 ASP Yearbook, which will come out in early December. There are so many good pictures that did not make to the awards, but some of those pictures may be also used in the yearbook."

The contest was open to students, staff and faculty of Willamette University, including the American Studies Program, and Tomodachi Program participants. There were great prizes, including two $50, four $25, and 11 $10 Compass Cash cards.
