CMC 50th Anniversary Photo Contest Winners

And the winners are….

(Wait, checking to be sure we have the right envelope.)

After more than 400 submissions and hundreds of votes, our judges have narrowed down the field to just nine. These are the images that best celebrate and illuminate “The Elevated Life” in Colorado Mountain College country.

Thank you to everyone who entered. Your work reminded us once again of how fortunate we are to live and learn in this beautiful part of the world! Keep your eyes out for our 50th Anniversary posters, coming this fall.
