Prizes: We're excited to award College of Science t-shirts to our monthly winners. One grand prize will be awarded to one of these finalists in September.

Terms: In addition to competing for prizes, we would like to "show off" your creative science photos on our social media accounts and on our website. If you are selected as a winner or as an honorable mention, we'll message you to see if you are comfortable with us using your photo.
