2015 Oregon Youth Photo Contest

As part of Oregon Public Health Week, Northwest Health Foundation and the Oregon Public Health Division are pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 Oregon Youth Photo Contest. 


The 20 finalists featured below did a fantastic job capturing this theme. Scroll over their photo to see their title, name and caption.


How were winners picked?

This year we had 95 entries. The 20 finalists were picked by a panel of judges with backgrounds in art, health equity and public health. The three winners were picked from among the finalists by a panel of youth judges.

When was the contest?

The contest is now closed. It opened on February 1, 2015 and closed on February 28, 2015 at 11:59pm.

Educators’ Grant

We offered small grants for educators to help them engage with the photo contest. We knew that many educators might have been interested in their students participating, but cost may have been a challenge. So we offered funding to make participation possible for as many youth as possible.
