ACP is pleased to announce that Eilis Gehle, a 17-year old student at Decatur High School, has won the ACP High School Essay Contest and a Canon Rebel digital-SLR kit. From Eilis' winning essay:
"I want to be able to take pictures of my memories. Maybe I won't become a photographer, but I will continue to always take pictures. If I had a camera I would be able to create my own memories through it and make memories for other people to cherish."We want to congratulate Eilis and thank each and every student who took the time to enter the contest. There were more entries than we expected, and choosing the winning essay was a true challenge.
We'd like to send a Big Thank You to Nida Zada for her kind and generous support of this year's contest. If you'd like to donate a (gently used) digital-SLR kit for this initiative, please contact us so we can continue to support young photographers!
