For the past three years, Northwestern Michigan College’s computer information technology department has hosted an event called the IT Academy Olympics. High school students attending career tech programs come to NMC for the all day event. They are assigned teams and rotate through various challenges, with the highest scoring teams taking home some fun (and usually geeky) prizes.

I’ve been their photographer for the past two years, and even though I’m on my feet all day, it’s a lot of fun and time just flies by. I do wish I had a more recent camera (still using a Canon Rebel t3i), just so my indoor ISO wouldn’t be so grainy, but that’s something to worry about in the future. Here are some of my favorite images from this year’s event.
