JULY PHOTO CONTEST!

July is the perfect time to celebrate all the “hot spots” to explore in the Keweenaw!

Whether it’s hiking Bare Bluff or reading in a hammock somewhere along the beautiful shoreline, we want to see your favorite summer spots! Get creative and think outside the box.  We also want to know why your spot is so amazing.  Is it the view? A place where something memorable happened? Perhaps you go there to disconnect?  Whatever your reason, please include that with your photo so we can let others know why they should check out this place, too. Keep an eye on our social media for reminders, new spots to explore, and photo inspirations!  

For those of you with a competitive side, this is also going to be a photo contest! We will be posting all of the photos and descriptions on our Facebook page for people to vote and the winner will get a hammock!
To participate, you can submit photos and descriptions by emailing activities@mtu.edu from July 1 – 22.  Voting will take place on the Student Leadership & Involvement Facebook from July 25 – 31 and the photo with the most likes/reactions will be the winner!!!
