Through Your Lens was judged by a panel of photographers, writers and advocates. The judging panel includes renowned photographers Callie Shell, Matt Slaby and Ami Vitale; Rachel Gutter, Director of the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council; and student judge Ian Starks, a winner of the 2009-10 Through Your Lens contest.
Through Your Lens is a collaboration of The 21st Century School Fund, Critical Exposure, and Healthy Schools Campaign to raise awareness of the need to fund school buildings that support learning and provide a safe, healthy environment for students and teachers. By sharing photos and stories of what they see every day at school, students and teachers provide us all with an honest window into today’s school buildings.
