Hoover Initiative Water Photo Contest Winners AnnouncedPosted Apr. 23, 2010
Students at Kent State University at Stark were given an opportunity illustrate the beauty of water and the challenges it faces as one of our planet&amp;amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s natural resources through photography. The contest was coordinated by the Hoover Environmental Initiative, a collaboration between Kent State Stark and the University of Miami (Florida), designed to develop generations of scholars who understand science and are able to produce new media that is fair, highly educational and effective in triggering change on individual and social levels.
Seven entries were chosen as winners, based on the categories of beauty, challenges, the Nimishillen Creek Watershed, black and white and honorable mention, granting each student a $40 Visa gift card.
