I won!!!

I won,I won,I won,I won,I won!!!!!

Can you tell I'm excited? I entered a contest that was ran by Clarian Health called "Photos for health". The basics of the contest was to submit photos that are calm and relaxing to add in the healing process. I entered close to 30 pictures all kinds of different things and i would check in from time to time but to be honest I thought that I was getting my butt kicked. I guess this is what I get for thinking. Here is the email that I got last night at 10:49 PM:

Dear Ryan Baxter,

Congratulations! Your photo has been selected to be displayed at Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center. Your participation in Photos for Health will help to create a healing and welcoming environment for patients, families, health care professionals, and the community Clarian Health serves. Thank you for taking the time to submit your photography, it will be appreciated for many years to come.

You are invited to a preview tour of Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center. Many of the photos will be displayed in non-public areas of the IU Simon Cancer Center. This is your opportunity to go behind the scenes and view your framed photography. We will also have a special gift for you.
