Photo Competition Winners

Thank you to everyone who participated in our photo competition. We had many amazing entries; it was hard to choose the winners! After much deliberation, we reached decision on a first, second, and two third place winners.



First place goes to Amy Cannon for her photo of teaching students green chemistry principles and experiments. Dr. Cannon says: “Perhaps one of the most important things we do is work with K-12 students to inspire future scientists and hopefully future green chemists.” She will win a package of fresh body butter and green tea body cream from Dirty Beauty Natural Skincare.




Second place goes to Sarah Dickerson with her entry of a photo with her green cleaning products. Sarah explains: “One of the simple ways I incorporate green chemistry into my life is by preparing non-toxic cleansers using natural alternatives. In this photo, I’m preparing an all-purpose general cleaner that harnesses the cleaning power of vinegar and baking soda. For a fresh scent, I like to add lemons and fresh rosemary from my organic garden.” Sarah will win a box from Susie’s Boxes.

Third place was a tie between the entries from Venkat Kaushik and Cindy Walters. Cindy’s picture is of one of her organically grown tulips (above). Venkat’s entry shows how he and his colleagues ride their bikes to work instead of driving their cars or motorcycles (below). Cindy won one of our prizes from Dirty Beauty Natural Skincare, and Venkat won handmade soap from Made by Mieka.
Congratulations to you all!
