Photography Challenge - High School
What Makes Your Team Shine?
VEX teams come from many countries and cultures, and no two teams are exactly alike. For this challenge, take a photo that shows us what makes your team special. Do you and your teammates share another hobby? Is there a common interest that brought you together? What do you do as a team to stand out from the crowd? This is your chance to share that uniqueness with the world!
