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!

TIUA is sponsoring an ASP Yearbook Photo Contest. Each year, students and staff create a yearbook, which reflects all that happened during that year through photographs. For the second year, there is a contest to select some photos for the yearbook. The contest is open to students, staff and faculty of Willamette University, including the American Studies Program, and Tomodachi Program participants. There are some great prizes, including two $50, four $25, and 10 $10 Compass Cash cards. In addition, if your photo is selected, you will be credited in the yearbook.
The contest deadline is April 22.
