To celebrate Earth Day, the theme for the APRIL 2011 As I See It Photo Competition was “EARTH”. The votes have been tabulated, and Christopher Taiwan Koh’s photograph entitled “Feeding The Earth One Blade At A Time” came in first place! We received hundreds of votes, both online and through ballots in the Unions. The finalists are shown below with information about the photographs that won.
