Education Senior Wins International Photo Contest

Education Senior Wins International Photo Contest

A senior student from the College of Education landed as runner-up in the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations (HPAIR) Photo Contest which ran from April 17 to 25.

Amyrrha Estolloso clinched the spot after sending a photo of herself with the historic Silliman Hall in the background.

Open worldwide, the photo contest looked for photos of individuals from diverse background and culture highlighting a local landmark and stating its significance to a local issue that is relevant to HPAIR.

The caption of Amyrrha’s winning photo read: “Silliman Hall…was named in honor of Dr. Horace Brinsmade Silliman, the man who had the great vision of establishing this first American school in the country. It stands as a testimony of his enduring legacy: the gift of education.”

HPAIR is Harvard University’s largest student connection in Asia. Established in 1991, it has facilitated several student fora and discussions about significant economic, political, and social issues relevant to the region.
