Announcing our 2019 Photo Contest Winners featured image


During our spring tours, chaperone, group leaders and students took creative, inspiring photos that captured their favorite parts of the trip. Our team loved looking through all the submissions to our annual photo contest and picking the finalists – it seems like D.C. was particularly photogenic this year! After tallying all the votes, we're excited to announce this year's winners.
