This is it…your last chance to win a prize as we wrap up our summer “Here’s Looking at LU Photo Contest.” We’re going to try to end things with a “toughie.” If you can identify this week’s mystery photo, send us your guess and you could win a weekly prize and qualify for the $50 grand prize prize package from KK’s Apparel and Gifts in the Warch Campus Center.

Last week’s “caged book” photo generated a bumper crop of submissions. Numerous respondents were in the right church but the wrong pew, mistaking the Milwaukee-Downer Room with the Lincoln Reading Room. Congratulations to Arielle Steinberg ’11 of Bartlett, Ill., who knew last week’s photo was of the locked bookcases in the Milwaukee Downer Room of the Mudd Library that house some of Lawrence’s rare book collection. Arielle was randomly selected from among 34 correct answers this week and will receive a Lawrence University spirit tumbler for her winning entry.

The contest concludes on Labor Day. Submit your guess by midnight, Sept. 5 to be eligible. In addition to awarding our final weekly prize, we also will announce our $50 grand prize from among all of the correct weekly entries. Good luck!

How the contest works:

Study the photo carefully and, if you can identify the item pictured, send an email to (see link below), telling us what it is. Be sure to include your name and mailing address. (Limit one entry per week per email address.)
