In the individual awards, we had two images score a perfect 30 points! Congratulations to Denise Saldana of the New Haven CC for her image “Sandhill Crane” and to Linda Brinckerhoff for her image “To Fly”. Since we did not have any images that scored 29, we did not break the tie and both will receive 1st place monetary awards. Images that scored 28 points received digital certificates.
