MCC Announces Annual Calendar Photo Contest Winner

MCC Annual Calendar Photo Contest Winner

Morgan Community College (MCC) congratulates Carl Steitz of Strasburg, Colorado for submitting the winning image for the college’s annual calendar photo contest.

MCC calendars featuring local photos were first published by the college in 1995. The 2023 winning photograph, “Byers Skyscrapers,” depicts a grain elevator and grain bins along Highway 40 West, where the plains of northeast Colorado meet the Rocky Mountains. The photo will be featured on the 2023 calendar and will be available for free at all MCC campus locations and the MCC Foundation office, 300 Main Street, Fort Morgan, beginning December 12, 2022.

“Each year we receive many impressive photos of northeast Colorado. This year was no different,” stated Ariella Gonzales-Vondy, MCC Director of Communications, Marketing, and Recruitment. “We received over 60 photos and were challenged once again to select only one image to be displayed on the college’s calendar. We are honored to share the local talent and beauty of the communities in the MCC service area.”

A collage of the photos submitted for the 2023 calendar contest can be viewed at and on MCC’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
