2022 Pollinator Photo Contest

Thank you to all of the people who submitted entries into the EIC's 2022 Pollinator Photo Contest! A total of 238 photos were submitted for consideration. These included pictures of pollinators from throughout Michigan and across America, including entries from Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. 

Center staff reviewed and discussed the merits of each photo. After several rounds of deliberations, winners were selected in each of three contest categories. Each winner will receive a bottle of honey produced in the campus bee hives. Congratulations!
