Photography 

Would you like to participate in a fun and creative project that showcases you and your talent for photography? Most individuals have access to a great camera on their phone or have one lying around the house. BRITE would love to see the talents that you possess. There are so many different things and people that you can photograph. Some examples include your passions, places that you love and feel safe or even you friends and the cool things you do. Statistics show that passion projects can help curb underage use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.  See our prompts and examples on our Photography page.  Then grab your cameras and show off your uniqueness and skills.
