Webber International University was bustling with activity last week when it held an Earth Day fair at the school, which was sponsored by the WIU Student Life chapter; WIU Athletics,;the Ouellette Law Firm, P.A.; Lake Wales Country Club; Oakwood Golf Club; and www.AnneRosenvald.com.

Vendors from throughout Central Florida were on hand, including a DJ for music, and a face painter, among many other participants, activities and events.

Perhaps the key piece of the festivities took place when awards were presented for the Spring 2014 Sports Photography Competition, in which students were given the challenge to take pictures of “sports type” activities.

The winning entries were:

• Denise Budde: “Strike 3” — 1st Place and Purchase Award

• Cory Misura: “On the Lines” — 3rd Place
