<strong>1st Place: “Cloud 9,” Hong Kong, China, by Dave Schutt</strong> This photo was taken from Mount Victoria in Hong Kong, China. The clouds made the picture because they allowed for the sun to light up only the harbor. This was one of 16,000+ photos I took while I circumnavigated the globe with 700 undergraduate studets on a ship. We took classes on the ship while traveling through Nova Scotia, Spain, Morocco, Ghana, South Africa, Mauritius, India, Vietnam, China, Japan, Hawaii and we ended in San Diego. I learned that we all smile and laugh in the same language. Traveling abroad is something everyone should experience because it will change the way you live your life. -Dave Schutt

The Center for International and Cultural Education sponsors an International Photo Contest annually. Photos are submitted by students who have studied abroad in the past two years. The Gustavus community votes on the photos, and the winning photos are displayed in the Campus Center hallway, this year starting Nov. 18.

Pictured are the top three in the popular vote. Winners in the other categories were Rebecca Beebe, Chaz Brown, Zach Hanson, Mara Johnson-Groh, Catherine Keith, Kristin Kennedy, Victoria Lund, David Pedersen and Jacqueline Schwerm. The winning photos will be featured in the 2011 International Calendar, available for $12 in the Book Mark or CICE office.
