Hanover's Best Shot Photo Contest

Hanover has been recognized repeatedly as one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country. We want you to dust off your cameras and show us just how photogenic our beloved campus can be by participating in Hanover's Best Shot. There will be a new contest each semester, with the best shot winning a $250 cash prize.

Submissions are now closed.

Below are ideas for what type of photos you may want to submit:

Sharing Traditions:  Winter and Spring are full of some of Hanover’s oldest and most beloved traditions. Show us your experience of rush, wiffleball, and other traditions that make Hanover special to you!

Transitions: Over the next few months Hanover will showcase the change from winter to spring, and we want to see it from your point of view. Show us how beautiful Hanover is decked out in icicles and in flowers.

Off-campus Antics: Your college experience doesn’t end when you leave campus.  Share with us what you are doing in Madison, a nearby city, or as you study off campus or abroad.
