Talented students from across the area showcased the natural beauty of the Island Paradise for the Key Biscayne Lions Club Photo Contest, and the winners are honored by the service club.
The annual competition challenged students to get outside and share the beauty of Key Biscayne through the lens of their cameras. After a panel of professionals had their say, first place went to Santiago Krossler from Design and Architecture Senior High, second place went to Lucas Wielandt from MAST Academy Senior High School, and third place went to Kaleia Zambrano from MAST Academy Senior High School.
The first-place photo appeared on the cover of the Lions Club’s annual Key Biscayne Directory.
