  • 2021-22 Photo Contest Winners

     

    As a way to track and post the winners of each month’s photo contest, Ive created this blog page for the 2021-2022 school year.  Contests generally run monthly from Sept/Oct through to May.

    In order to win a monthly prize you need to be a student at DCTC this year ( any program either semester) and win first place in the judged monthly contest AND be an active member of the club  ( usually that means attending a few meetings or outing and participating in a few virtual or in person meetings).

     

    Congratulations to all the winners!!

    So here is our recap:

    No contests for Aug. or Sept. of 2021
