To celebrate International Education Week (IEW) 2020, OISS hosted a mini photo competition open to all members of the Rice international community. The winner was selected by a popular vote by the Rice international community, and received a $30 Coffeehouse gift card.
Here is the winner!
The winning photo was submitted by Salma Alhashim, a PhD student from Saudi Arabia. Here's the story behind her photo:
"One day I was exploring the Buffalo Bayou Park and I saw a pedestrian bridge with a high chainlock fence that is full of a huge variety of locks. A typical scene that would normally be seen in famous European capitals such as Paris. While I was walking, caught my attention a little hole in that fence facing the Houston skyline. It looks like a window that allows me to take a very nice view of Houston downtown."
Here are the other competition photos, in the order in which they were submitted.
Thank you to all the participants and to everyone who voted!
