Of the more than 30 images submitted to York University’s Red & White Day Spirit photo competition and after considerable deliberation, the judges have selected the winning photos. On March 26, York University encouraged students, faculty and staff to wear Red & White or York gear for a group photograph. Photos were then submitted to Red & White day organizers for a chance to win coffee service and snacks for the entire class or administrative area.
There are two winners! Contest entries were judged by Professor Sue Vail, associate vice-president Teaching and Learning. Vail represented York Faculty. The student judge was Faculty of Education student Danielle Munoz. Munoz is the choreographer for the Vanier College Productions Show Choir. Representing staff was Morgan Russell, secretary to the president. Winners will receive a prize of coffee and treats.
The winner of the student group photograph was Faculty of Health student Sean Bharrat. Bharrat’s photograph was a “selfie” and included friends from the York U student body.
The winning staff-faculty group photograph featured staff from the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost. The group posed in front of a larger gallery wall featuring portraits of past vice-presidents.
The Red & White Spirit Day photo competition saw participants submitting photos celebrating York University’s tremendous spirit through social media by sharing them using #YUSpiritPhoto and posting them on Instagram or Twitter or sharing with the Red & White Spirit Day photo page found on the Office of the President website. The contest ran on March 26.
York University’s annual Red & White Spirit Day is well on its way to becoming a time honoured tradition. This year’s celebration featured an aerial photograph and lots of high energy activities, see the March 27 YFile for the full recap.
Red & White Spirit Days occur twice a year in York University’s Student Centre. The spirit day pays tribute to York’s athletes and the University’s students, faculty and staff.
