Junior Encourages Solutions to Climate Change by Winning Photo Competition

Junior+Encourages+Solutions+to+Climate+Change+by+Winning+Photo+Competition

In a recent photo competition, run by George Mason University’s Virginia Climate Center, junior Madelyn Jones earned 1st place. She is an RCHS Photography II student and she enjoys taking pictures of landscapes. 

The goal of the competition was to educate Virginia residents and bring awareness to Virginia’s battle against climate change. The competition was open to Virginia high schoolers and college students, making it even harder to win. 

 Jones submitted a picture of the Rockbridge Baths solar panels that have been built recently to help the climate. With her creativity, striving to promote awareness of climate change, and photography abilities, she won the contest. 

She will be featured on a Washington D.C. news station, WUSA9 News, and her creativity will be shown off to viewers.
