As we say goodbye to the 2013 Summer Work Travel Season, we would like to take the opportunity to highlight our Summer Photo Contest winners. Participants were asked to submit a photo that captured their SWT experience along with a short description. Congratulations to both Pavel Jan and Xin Gao for their phenomenal photos that truly captured the adventures of a CCI Greenheart SWT participant.

Pavel Jan – Czech Republic – First Place Winner of an iPod Touch

“During August 2013, I decided to hike Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. My adventure started at midnight, so I arrived to the famous Half Dome cables at sunrise. I’ll never forget the view and the silence of Yosemite at the top of Half Dome. It was without a doubt the best morning I have ever had. Thank you CCI Greenheart for making this experience possible.”

LOVE, LIFE, ENJOY LIFE “Standing on top of the Grand Canyon reminds me a lot of this adage: Without CCI Greenheart, I would not have come to the U.S.A. this summer, and would not have been able to experience the amazing life I had here. So I learned that life is so short, just enjoy yourself and love your life!”

2013 has been a great year with many wonderful pictures. Be sure to view our other photos to see all the winners from this past year during CCI Greenheart’s three seasons.

Congratulations from CCI Greenheart to our winners!
