CSI Solicits Photos for Health Science Building


Any photographers with high quality landscape, wildlife, or other nature photographs taken in south central Idaho are encouraged to submit one or two of their photos to the College of Southern Idaho. Selected photographs from around the area will be displayed in the CSI Health Science Human Services building on North College Road. 

“This spacious building has been accommodating to our students and the public in every way since we moved into it in 2010, but all our walls are pretty stark,” said CSI Dean of Health Sciences and Human Services Mark Sugden. “We have lots of places to display large, attractive images of southern Idaho.”
Amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit no more than two photos for consideration. The photo details and requirements can be found at http://ow.ly/JlUFG.

A committee will be convened to select the photos to be enlarged and displayed. Photos that are chosen will feature the photographer’s name and the photographers will be thanked at a recognition celebration that will be announced at a later time.
