Creativity Is Limitless—Grab Your Camera

For Kindergarten–12th Grade Students

K–12 students can show off their talents from behind the lens in the annual Stride National Photography Competition. At Stride, we know creativity has no limits, so this year there is no theme. We want to see what you can create with your full imagination and skill set. 

What can you win? Each grade band will have a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and overall winner. First place will receive a $500 Amazon e-gift card, 2nd a $250 e-gift card, and 3rd a $100 e-gift card. Overall grade band winners will receive a Canon EOS 250D camera and kit valued at $1,000. 

Winning photographs will be showcased at the Stride headquarters in Virginia and featured in Stride-produced curriculum and materials. 

This National Photography Competition is open to students in kindergarten through 12th grade, and students outside of Stride K12-powered schools can also participate!
