CFD Student Nikki Tverberg Receives Honors in SDSU International Photo Contest

Nikki Tverberg Photo
Child and Family Development senior, Nikki Tverberg, has received Honorable Mention in the 8th Annual SDSU International Photo Contest!

Each year San Diego State University invites current students to share photos from their international study abroad experiences with a specific theme in mind.  The 2014 contest theme was The Significance of Food: Images that reflect the importance of food to your host culture, including food production, distribution, preparation, role in ceremony, and societal impacts.

Nikki’s photo was selected to receive an Honorable Mention award out of 94 photo submissions and narratives.  Photo submissions spanned the globe, from China to Peru, from Switzerland to Madagascar. Accompanying narratives gave these photo submissions their context and meaning, and illustrated the contest theme.

Nikki’s photo, “Memorable Mango,” was taken during her trip to Guatemala, which was coordinated by SDSU and the College of Education.  View Nikki’s inspiring photo.

Additionally, the winning photos were placed on display for public viewing on the SDSU Campus on October 17-18, 2014.  Many congratulations to all of the winners!
