William Woods University students who were winners of this year’s international flag contest have been announced.

Kaitlyn Wideman of Russellville, Mo., took first place for her flag and essay on the Netherlands; Audrey Dodsworth of Livonia, Mo., took second place for Brazil; and Crystal Olney of King City, Mo., took third place for Argentina.

The annual competition is sponsored by the registrar’s office. Each participant was assigned a country represented in the WWU student body and asked to write a short essay about the country and create a depiction of that country’s flag.
