Happy New Year everyone!  We hope you and your family had a safe and festive Holiday season. Here in the Wellness office we have so much to share with you, and catch you up on. So let’s get started. First, we want to announce our December Challenge of the Month winners.  They are:

Mike Walker from UM Western won our Montana Moves drawing for his photo submissions to our Picture of the Year competition.

Marilyn Cameron from Montana Tech won our Montana Meals drawing for donating to her local food bank.  

Following are some photos that we thought deserved Honorable Mention for Photo of the Year.  Remember, we looked at photos shared with us during our December challenge, as well as those sent for other challenges during the year. Over the next few days, we’ll share the photo finalists and reveal the Wellness Photo of the Year, plus we still have to draw for our 2013 End of Year Prize!  Tomorrow we’ll kick off the 2014 Challenge Season with our January Challenge of the Month.  There will be plenty of news and excitement, so be sure to check back often, or subscribe to the blog to receive an email each time we post!  Here’s our Honorable Mention group. Thanks for sharing!
