Our 2018 Summer Photo Contest

August 21, 2018

The 2018 Summer Photo Contest has finally come to an end, and we couldn't be more excited with the results! Each week, we received incredible pictures from participants located all across the United States having the time of their lives. Learn more about the contest and each of our nine winners below!

The 2018 Summer Photo Contest marks our 3rd annual photo contest for participants on the Summer Work and Travel program, as well as the Intern and Trainee programs. For nine weeks in the summer, we announce a different weekly photo theme for anyone who wants to participate. To enter, participants must be following us on Instagram (@spiritexchange) so they can tag us. They must also use the hashtag #ShowYourSpirit. It's as easy as that!

At the end of the nine weeks, we announced our final Grand Prize Winner - Yiqi C. from C Lazy U Ranch! He received an Apple iPad (and plenty of bragging rights!). All weekly winners received a Starbucks gift card and a personalized travel mug decorated with their winning photo. We hope you enjoy viewing the winning photos and getting a taste of all the cool things our participants have been doing!
