3rd Annual HESN Photo Contest 2015

Every summer, students and faculty from the eight Higher Education Solutions Network (HESN) Development Labs venture out into the world, serving as ambassadors of science and innovation to partner with communities and tackle the world’s toughest development challenges.

Our network engages in a variety of activities, from innovation design summits to conducting rigorous research to broaden our understanding of modern-day development.

The HESN Photo Contest is an opportunity to showcase our network’s stories. All photos are uploaded onto the Global Development Lab’s Flickr album for the public-eye to see. Last year’s album was seen by over 6,000 viewers!

This year’s prizes are:

  • First place: $500
  • Second place: $300
  • Third place: $150

Additionally, your photo has the chance to be featured (with credit) on USAID’s website and public outreach documents.

The contest closes on October 4th – apply now!
