State Contest Seeks Study Abroad Photos

Any student currently attending a Missouri college or university could win up to $200—just for submitting a photo.

Study Missouri, a collaborative project among Missouri colleges and universities, is hosting a photo contest for snapshots taken during students’ study abroad experiences. The contest includes cash prizes for each category, international and study away, and all high-quality entries will be displayed for International Education Day Feb. 16 in the Missouri State Capitol rotunda.

Photographs must feature a country where the photographer attended college and photos must be “true to life” without alternations such as photoshopped objects or people.

The grand prize winner will receive $200, first place winners will receive $150, second place will receive $100 and third place winners will receive $75. All prize money will be applied to educational expenses for the recipients.
