Lindsey Downs from Plymouth High School Earns National Photo Contest Award, Sponsored by Jostens and Wolfe’s Camera
Lindsey Downs, a junior from Plymouth High School was recently awarded an Honorable Mention in the 2011 Photo Contest, sponsored by Jostens and Wolfe’s Camera. This nationally acclaimed, annual competition recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of student photographers.
Downs was among 114 winners selected from more than 6000 contest entries submitted by high school, junior high and middle school students nationwide. Photo contest submissions were judged on composition, artistic merit, and technical qualities, as well as the ability to convey a compelling story.
In addition to serving as an assistant editor for the 2011 Mayflower yearbook, Downs is also a member of the National Honor Society and French Club. She throws shot put and discus on the girls track team. She is a nine year member of the Green Acres 4-H Club. Her parents are Lester and Patty Downs.
"Jostens is honored to recognize the artistic talents of student photographers and their ability to capture important school experiences and traditions through the lenses of their cameras,” said Gary Lundgren, Jostens’ senior program manager/education. “Our photo contest allows students to personalize, share, and remember school experiences through sophisticated, high quality photography. Many of the submitted photos will help tell their school story as part of the yearbook.”
Downs’ winning photograph, along with all the other winning photographs from the 2011 Photo Contest, were announced on Facebook and featured on the Jostens.com Web site. These photos will also be featured in the 2011 issue of the Jostens Gotcha Covered Look Book, a popular resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative ideas, trends, and inspiration.
