Halliday wins UA study-abroad photo award

Journalism student Spencer Halliday captured the grand prize in the photo contest for all UA study-abroad programs on Nov. 15.

Spencer, who was awarded a $700 airline travel voucher, took Professor Kim Newton's Orvieto, Italy, study-abroad course last summer.

He snapped the photo below of a young priest reading while two guards kept watch outside Vatican City.

The image and other study-abroad photos are on display in the Student Union Gallery through Nov. 18.
