Brightspark Travel is thrilled to announce the winners of the 2017 Photo Contest. Winners were chosen by a panel of Brightspark elected judges and voted upon by the entire Brightspark Travel staff for the top three favorite photos in our student contest and group leader/chaperone contest. This year, like every year, we received a ton of outstanding tour photos taken by talented students, group leaders and chaperones. We’re sure you’ll enjoy checking out the winners of both contests!
*Drum Roll Please*
Third Place: We loved this Washington, D.C. photo taken by Cosette C. Not only does it capture the Washington Monument, but we loved seeing the Brightspark backpacks in this shot.
Second Place: Second place was given to this artistic photo taken by Joci O., capturing a student tossing her hat into the air in the middle of Times Square in New York. If anyone has seen the Mary Tyler Moore show, this photo reminded several staff members of the opening song.
First Place: This incredible shot taken by Katy S. at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial stood out as a front-runner right away. This photo represents unity and everything Martin Luther King Jr. fought for. The entire staff loved it!
Group Leader/Chaperone Winners
Third Place: Third place was given to Amanda M. for capturing a fun and exciting shot taken in front of the Chicago Cloud Gate. This fun photo of students jumping in the air represents the excitement of being on a Brightspark tour.
Second Place: Ryann S. took an amazing photo of four friends in Washington D.C. walking to their next destination. Brightspark tours bring students closer together as represented in this photo. Plus, it's always great to see the students wearing their Brightspark backpacks.
First Place: This amazing photo was taken by Eddie P. and the judges and staff immediately loved this shot. Not only is the Washington Monument in the background of this photo, but the students are also sitting on the side of the Lincoln Memorial. Great combination of history and Brightspark fun!
