West Virginia University’s Mountaineer Week Photo Contest, presented by The Ridge and MedExpress, allows students to showcase their creative photography skills and demonstrate what West Virginia beauty means to them.

The contest is open to all WVU students. Three cash prizes will be awarded to winners for first ($100), second ($75) and third ($50) place. There will also be one People’s Choice winner, where students will get a chance to vote on their favorite photograph.

The photos will be on display in front of the Mountainlair information desk from Friday, Nov. 6 through Sunday, Nov. 15.

All members of the student body, faculty, staff and community are invited to participate in Mountaineer Week activities and events. This year, Mountaineer Week is from Nov. 7-15.
