Congrats to our first Summer Photo Contest winners

Keep submitting your #ufatplay photos for a chance to win a UF giveaway!

Thank you to everyone who has submitted photos to UF at Work’s summer photography contest, which remains open through Aug. 16.

Our first-place winner for June is Tina Thuy Nguyen, end-user computing specialist for the Warrington College of Business, who shared the photo of Dream Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park pictured above.

“I took a trip to Colorado in May and was lucky enough to see a snowy mountain,” said Nguyen. “It actually snowed two days before I flew in.”

Nguyen won two tickets to a performance in UF Performing Arts’ 2019–20 season.
