Historian Ellie Kammerer started the Photo of the Season contest in 2017. Every season, students are invited to submit any one photo of a JCL-related event. The photo must be taken during that season (e.g. photos taken in the summer cannot be submitted to the Winter category). View the full rules here.

Winners get extra points added to their scrapbook submission at the OJCL Convention in March, $25 for a Latin Club pizza party, recognition at State Convention, and a feature on OJCL social media accounts!
