Photo Contest Results: Fall Semester, 2017


We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Fall Semester Contest!

Every semester, the National Volunteer Center hosts a photo contest in which current volunteers may submit photos depicting their volunteer service to four different categories: School Life, Family and Home Life, Life in Chile, and «Beanie There, Done That». Once all photos have been collected, online voting is opened up to current volunteers and English Opens Doors Program staff. For the 2017 Fall contest, we received many wonderful submissions, but ultimately three winners for each category were selected. Additionally, favorite photos were uploaded to Instagram and the photo receiving the most “likes” won the “Fan Favorite” prize. Please see below for details regarding the winners for each category. Information is listed as: “Photo Title”, Volunteer Name, Service, Placement Town- Region.
