Congratulations go out to the talented student photographers who took home top honors in this year’s Sanibel Middle School’s nature photography contest!
This annual school event is a partner program of the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge and its Wildlife Society, and Bank of the Islands, which provides medals, cash prizes and exhibition space for the contest.
Earlier this school year, the students visited the Refuge with their photography instructor at the Sanibel Middle School, Dr. Terrie Kielborn. The lessons continued back in the classroom where Dr. Kielborn then taught the students how to enhance their photography using computer software and name their finished pieces creatively.
All of the student photographs are now being exhibited in the lobby of the Bank of the Islands at 1699 Periwinkle Way. We encourage you to stop by to take a look!
