2019 Life in Focus Photo Contest Winners

 

Theme: Home

 

We were excited to see the response to our very first Photo Contest! The theme HOME means something different to each of our homeschool students and it shows in their photos! Thank you to all who took the time to send in a photo. All the entries were viewed by our six photo-loving judges, and then evaluated with 6 different criteria. Enjoy the results!
