The Center for International Education would like to thank this year's judges, and congratulate all of the students who were finalists in this year's contest.
They traveled to Asia, Europe and Central America to further their studies in such fields as nursing, social work, chemistry, criminal justice, mathematics and the arts. What they all brought with them were cameras and an artistic eye for recognizing a great shot and capturing those memorable images.
They’re Adelphi’s Study Abroad Photo Contest finalists—14 students who studied abroad in 14 different locations around the world, said Shannon Harrison, director of the Center for International Education. Their photos, selected from 75 submissions, depict such subjects as a castle in Scotland, the view from the top of Mont Blanc in Italy and an action shot of a soccer game in Guatemala.
“Study abroad offers students an opportunity to learn experientially,” said Harrison. “The photos they take enable the Adelphi community to learn along with them. Many of the photographs share images of local customs or national symbols, while others, like Benjamin Feldman’s photo of a Guatemalan mother taking care of a child, remind us that we are all the same.”
Somehow this year’s judges—Steve Everett, D.M.A., provost and executive vice president, and Cindy Maguire, associate professor and director of art and art history and academic director of the Levermore Global Scholars program—were able to make a decision. Sophia Casto, a sophomore in the STEP program majoring in chemistry, was awarded first place for her black-and-white photo of a wall made from tombstones in a Jewish cemetery in the small Polish town of Kazimierz Dolny. Casto studied abroad in the Adelphi faculty-led summer chemistry research program at the University of Warsaw during summer 2018 under the guidance of Associate Professor Justyna Widera-Kalinowska, Ph.D.
Guests at the Global Reception that kicked off International Education Week voted on the People’s Choice Award. Nicole Salgado, M.A. ’18, a graduate of the TESOL program who was in Spain student teaching, won for her shot taken from the Bunkers del Carmel at sunrise.
“The Center for International Education would like to thank this year’s judges, and congratulate all of the students who were finalists in this year’s contest,” said Harrison.
