What’s turned into a University of Utah tradition, the annual Utah Grad photo contest is a great chance for graduates to share the moments that made their college experience a memorable one. This year, more than 500 entries were submitted on Instagram, Twitter and through email. The photos are shown in a video montage at the Huntsman Center before the commencement ceremony, and first, second and third place entries are selected by the Alumni Association, who also sponsors the contest. Prizes include an iPad, Campus Store gift cards and season tickets to Utah football, men’s basketball and gymnastics. So without further ado, here are the winners, and also some of our other favorites.
First Place: Lorna Balfour
Second Place: Lacey Despain
