Photo Contest

It’s that time of year again to bring out your cameras or use your cell phones to capture some great pictures!  The Media Center wants to give students a chance to show off their photography skills!  All students are welcome to participate.  Pamphlets are available in the media center. 

Photographs are due to the FVE Media Center by Monday, May 1st.

Photos will be on exhibit in the Friendship Valley Elementary Media Center until Friday, May 19th

Teachers will vote for their favorites.  Students will vote for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.  Parents will be able to view the photos using the links below.  We had planned for parents to also vote for their favorites, but our plan is not working out.  Please enjoy  looking at all of the AMAZING Photos your students created!  We have A LOT of talent at FVE!
