Three UT graduate students won gift cards for their striking shots entered in the 2016 Ottawa River Photography Contest.
Bruce Kwiatkowski, who is pursuing a master of arts degree in German, won first place with his photo titled “Winter Scene.”
Tyler Westendorf, a graduate student in environmental science, came in second with his shot, “Bridge View.”
And Isha Muthreja, a graduate student in engineering, took third place with her photo titled “Reflections.”
“This contest was created to encourage students to take a closer look at the Ottawa River,” said Dr. Patrick Lawrence, associate dean of social and behavioral sciences in the College of Arts and Letters; professor of geography and planning; and chair of the President’s Commission on the River. “And it’s a great way to showcase the beauty of the waterway that we’re lucky to have run through campus.”
The event was part of the Celebrate Our River Week and was sponsored by the President’s Commission on the River.
