High-school students attended class trips from Oct. 4-7. They were asked to post photos of their trip on Twitter or Instagram and tag the Octagon to be entered in the competition. The winner was given a $20 gift card to a restaurant or store of their choosing. Winners were chosen based on image quality, image content and caption creativity.
