Dorseyville teacher takes shot; wins photo contest grand prize
Dorseyville Middle School art teacher Nanci Goldberg was named the grand-prize winner in the “Best Shots” national digital photo contest.
As the national winner, Goldberg will receive a Canon EOS Rebel T3i and an Eye-Fi wireless SD memory card.
More than 750 entries were submitted in four categories — people, travel, pets, and cell phone shots.
All of the contest entries were displayed earlier in January as part of exhibits at the 2013 CES (Consumer Electronics Show), the world's largest innovation event.
Prior to being named the grand-prize winner, a slate of judges selected finalists in each category.
Then online voting took place from Jan. 8 to 11, after which Goldberg was named the overall grand- prize winner.
Goldberg's photo was taken on her cell phone in October 2012 at Fall Run Park in Shaler Township and featured leaves in a small creek.
Goldberg, a resident of Shaler Township, has been teaching art in the Fox Chapel Area School District since 1992.
