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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
