“I was very impressed with the photography display — the winners were on display, but there were so many amazing photos entered and the video loop was a wonderful tribute and representation of all of those … We have such amazing talent in Ohio, and the Creative Arts department does it all justice. Thank you.”  Bev Shaffer, Judge
