The Devil's Advocate held a Photo of the Week contest about a month before Winter Break, allowing winning students to feature their photos on their column located on the Home page. Students were able to submit one photo for each of the four categories; Nature, Animals, Downtown Vancouver and Food. Submissions were taken in until Friday the 15th of November by email. Approximately 30 photos were submitted, majority for the Nature and Animals category, while almost 15 people participated, two already on the newspaper! Winning for the Nature category Monday, November 25th was Miranda Schulz in Grade 12 with her photo of Grouse Mountain. Then, the following week, Jaden Bach in Grade 11 won for his photo, titled "Underwater Paradise", in the Animals category. Kathinka Gundermann in Grade 11 won for her photo of Downtown Vancouver Monday, December 9th and finally, the last week before Winter Break, Polina Khlebnikova, also in Grade 11, won for her photo in the Food category. All winners were awarded a Starbucks gift card which they picked up from Ms. Oliver's room, Room 176. Their photos, along with those of the other participants, were also featured on a bulletin board in the Main Hall outside Mrs. Jobke's room, Room 104. All in all, I think it was safe to say the school newspaper had a difficult time voting for the winners' of each category; all the photos were so beautiful! Participants' photos are still open for viewing on the Devil's Advocate's Facebook page.
