On Wednesday evening, Ambassador Gautam Rana awarded the winner of a photo contest made by participants in the U.S. government’s Summer Work and Travel Program. During the festive reception, they could also taste the traditional menu that is served on Thanksgiving Day.
“This popular program is a way for Slovaks to get to know the USA, but also the other way around,” said Ambassador Rana at the award ceremony about this student program.
Among the many photos submitted to the competition, the jury selected 20, which people could vote on the Facebook page of the U.S. Embassy. The winner was Adam Trepáň with the photo “Sunset and Surfing in Newport Beach, California”.
Ambassador Rana congratulated the winner and presented him with a prize – an Instax camera.
Congratulations to the contestants and the winner!
