CHC’s Sports Photo Scholarship Contest was open to all high school and college varsity athletes who will be attending college full-time for the 2012-2013 academic year. To enter this contest, a celebratory photo that displayed the ‘true celebration of a sport’ had to be submitted. The athletes needed to either be in the photo or could have taken the photo.
There were over 250 entrants who submitted a celebratory sports photo. CHC judged the photos based on the spirit and emotion of the celebration, and selected 11 lucky Finalists, who each won their own custom varsity letter frame. A new trend with student athletes is framing their varsity letters so that they can both preserve and display their athletic achievement.
Then the public voted on their favorite sports photo from the 11 Finalists. The Finalists reached out to their social networks, family, friends, blogs, local newspapers, and other outlets to receive votes.
The Sports Photo Scholarship Contest 2012 allowed athletes to share their passion for sports while competing for a scholarship to help further their education.
