Photo Contest Winners!

Congratulations to our 2017 Photo Contest Winners! The Fan Favorite below came from our NAWMBA chapter at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Most Creative Photo winners were from Tulane University in New Orleans. They spelled out "NAWMBA" with their bodies. Talk about getting into it!
