Ten-year-old Benjamin Scheffler, son of Mike ’94 and Lori Scheffler, is the winner of the 10-and-under category. His father majored in Business Administration when an undergraduate at Alfred University.

Eleven-year-old Braelyn Baulsir, daughter of Jonathan ’02 and Deborah Baulsir, took top honors in the 11-17 year-old category. His father also majored in Business Administration.

Contestants colored drawings of an Alfred University campus scene designed by Olivia Piazza ’19, who works as a graphic designer in the University’s Office of Marketing and Communications. Numerous submissions were submitted by alumni and their children, evoking individual imaginings of the natural beauty of the campus.
