Three winners to be selected in photo contest portraying college life.

Once again, high school students can win a $500 college scholarship from University Language Services.

ULS is asking high schoolers on college visits to try and pinpoint what goes into the life-changing decision of choosing a school by submitting a photo of what college means to them.

Students can enter any photo taken on a US college campus during their college visits. In addition, each entry must be accompanied by a description of no more than 200 words detailing why that photo represents college to them.

Any photo is eligible – from students playing Frisbee on the quad to a picture of the dorm cafeteria – provided the photo was taken by the entrant on a college campus.

Students can submit a photograph in any one of the five rounds of the contest. In each round, eight entries will be selected and posted on the ULS website. Visitors to the site will then be able to vote on their favorites for a week. The top three vote-getters will move on to the final round.

A panel of judges will then choose the winners from among the finalists. One grand prize winner will receive a $500 college scholarship, while the second and third place winners will each receive a $100 scholarship.

All entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST October 10, 2012. Winners will be announced on or about November 12, 2012.

The submission form and official rules for the contest are available on the ULS website at
