The Museum of Art and the UNH Sustainability Academy teamed up this year to host UNH’s first student video and image contest on the theme, “What Sustainability Means to Me.”
The winners were announced yesterday in the Paul Creative Arts Center. Jessica Daigle, a junior studio art major, won the honor of best image and walked away with a check for $500.
Jessica’s image is called “Windmill.”
“I traveled to California and spent about a week on a conservation island,” Jessica explains. “I took this shot after hiking the hills of the island. As I finished my hike, approaching the nearby ocean, I came upon this windmill and felt blessed to have found such a beautiful sight.”
In addition to pursuing her B.A. in studio art, Jessica is working towards a master’s in elementary education. She plans to graduate in 2014 with both degrees in hand.
