2019 Student Photo Contest

The State of the Rockies project invited students to submit a photo and a description of the photo from the Rocky Mountain West that reminds us of the importance of conservation efforts given recent significant evidence of climate change and the Trump administration's proposed slash to government funding of public lands.

Conservation in the West 2019 Poll voters strongly supported the protection of land and water over energy production. A majority of Westerners identify as conservationists and believe the loss of wildlife habitat to be an extremely serious problem.

Submitted photos addressed areas of concern for wildlife, outdoor recreation, shifting climate patterns and processes, public lands, and water availability. Finalists' photos were exhibited on Tutt Library's Ray Data Viz Wall during Earth Week, April 22-26, 2019. Library visitors, faculty, staff, and students voted by text for the photo and description they felt was most compelling.
