Rebecca Bell Wins IAA Internship Photo Contest

Rebecca Bell submitted this year's winning photo from her internship at Heyser Farms.
Internships are a prized component of the Institute of Applied Agriculture's (IAA) hands-on learning process. So much, in fact, that each student is required to complete an internship in order to earn a Certificate in Applied Agriculture.

Over the course of every internship, IAA advisors visit their students on-site. The advisors take excellent photos, but it is the moments captured by students that drive our annual IAA Internship Photo Contest. The photo contest is an opportunity for IAA students to submit their most unique images of the summer. This year, the contest was held on Instagram using the hashtag #myiaainternship.

Our 2017 photo contest winner, Sustainable Agriculture student Rebecca Bell, interned at Heyser Farms in Colesville, Md. Aside from propagating perennials, harvesting ripe peaches, and managing the cut flower operation, she also operated a tractor; a photo of Bell driving a Ford tractor with the caption, "Let me take you for a ride," was the winning entry.

As the photo contest winner, Bell will receive a $100 scholarship and lunch with IAA Director Glori Hyman. Congratulations, Rebecca Bell!
