Inaugural ChiArts Photography Competition

"Coinciding with a grant to build and equip a photography lab at ChiArts high school, we initiated a competition for students to show their best work created during the year. The seven finalists were chosen by a staff commitee at ChiArts, and the order of the seven candidates was then decided by the full board of The Reva and David Logan Foundation.
