National Geographic Kids Teams Up with Second Lady Jill Biden to Showcase Young Photographers at Vice President’s Residence

This month, a photograph by Ashleigh Scully of Harding Township is on display at the Vice President’s Residence in Washington, D.C., along with images from nine other kids from across the country as part of a new collaboration between National Geographic Kids and Dr. Jill Biden, second lady of the United States, to celebrate young photographers. The Bidens have always displayed rotating art in the Vice President’s Residence for guests to enjoy, and this new project, which launched in July 2015, showcases the work of budding photographers.

Each month, National Geographic Kids editors will select top photographs from My Shot, National Geographic’s moderated photo community for kids that complies with federal regulations for children’s online privacy protection. Those photos will then be exhibited on a rotating digital frame at the Vice President’s Residence, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy multiple amazing photographs each month. Highlighted kids will also receive a digital “VP” badge for their Nat Geo Kids My Shot page.

“I enjoy photographing wildlife around my hometown and other parts of New Jersey, especially owls and foxes,” says Ashleigh, a 13 year-old from Harding. “This photo is of a red fox from a state park on the New Jersey shore. I have been photographing foxes and snowy owls there for the past few winters. I hope to use my photos to encourage kids to get out and enjoy nature and to learn to live with and appreciate all of the wildlife around us. Thank you to National Geographic Kids and Dr. Jill Biden for recognizing my work!”

“Joe and I are proud to bring the creativity of so many young photographers from across the country into our home and to see the world through their lens,” said Dr. Biden. “I am so impressed by the incredible talent and professionalism of these kid photographers, and I look forward to sharing their work with our family, friends and all those who visit the Vice President’s Residence.”

“I’m thrilled to join Dr. Biden in congratulating the extraordinarily talented young photographers whose images have been selected for display at the Vice President’s Residence,” said National

 

Geographic Society President and CEO Gary E. Knell. “National Geographic is committed to inspiring, educating and celebrating young people, because they are the leaders who will protect our planet in the future.”
