Faith’s First Annual Photography Contest


Mia Coe

Photos that were submitted and displayed in the CPAC for all students and teachers to see!

If you have been wondering what all of the beautiful photographs on display in the CPAC were, it is the first annual photography contest.

Faith Lutheran’s visual arts department held its first annual photography contest this year. Students from middle school, high school, and even staff members were able to submit their images to be judged and possibly win the contest.

They could enter up to three photos. The deadline for submission was October 7th. Students and staff have the opportunity to show off their photography. There were six categories that staff and students could enter under: portrait, pets, documentary, nature, sports, and still life. Staff and students were judged separately. All photos are in the CPAC for display. 

Many students entered the contest. Reese Sandquist, was one of many students who entered multiple photos into the contest. His favorite photo that he took was of the Northern Lights.“My favorite is my photograph of the Northern Lights from Norway because it was the first time I had ever seen the Northern Lights and it was where my dad taught me a lot about photography.” 

Mac Grupe, another contestant explains her favorite photograph she took. “My favorite photo is probably the cheer photo because it showed the cheer team in action and the crowd’s reaction to the stance they were doing.”   

The winning photographs will be professionally printed and displayed as well as published in the middle school and high school yearbooks. The winner will also receive a prize in the form of a gift certificate.

Mrs. Buchholz, creator of the contest is very happy to now have an annual photography contest and continue to allow students and staff display their photographs for all to see. Go check it out in the CPAC today, or see her in the photography studio for more information on the photography program at Faith.
