Scream for this School Spirit Photo Contest winner

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Stand up and shout for Patterson Wells from First Flight High School in Kill Devil Hills, N.C., as she is a two-time winner in this year’s Photo Contest!

Patterson took the top prize in the Club or Organization category, and now she is the winner in School Spirit as well.

Patterson’s photo of First Flight senior Kaelyn Musika showing off her spirit during the annual homecoming pep rally scream-off took the honors.

Patterson wins a $100 Visa gift card and a pizza party for the yearbook staff.

Winners were selected by a committee of judges based on the following criteria: quality of photo (25%), appropriateness to category (10%), photography rules followed (25%), creativity demonstrated (15%) and viral nature as determined by the number of Likes (25%) on Facebook.
