Fall 2013 Scholarship Photo Contest

By using both pictures and words, high school students from all over the US answered the question “What does college mean to you?”

To enter the ULS scholarship photo contest, students had to submit a photo taken while on a college visit, accompanied by a 100-200 word description which explained why that photo represents what college means to them.

This year’s Grand Prize winner is Kristin Stolzenberg, for her photo of a campus building at the University of Delaware.

While getting lost on her college visit, Kristin realized that “this is what college is for, not only to further your education, but to find yourself. I realized that all of the students in college must have felt lost too at first, yet began to find their way, both to their classes as well as finding themselves as people.”

$500 Grand Prize Winner

  • Kristin Stolzenberg, a senior at South River High School in Maryland, for her photo of the University of Delaware, Newark.
