PISCATAWAY, New Jersey, January 14. ONE of the reasons Swimming World has enjoyed attending the CeraVe Invitational each year is the opportunity to work with high school students and help hone their craft as journalists, photographers and videographers.

This year was no different, especially when it came to working with five budding photographers. Their work captured hundreds of great moments on the deck at the Sonny Werblin Recreation Center, and we're happy to showcase them for you in a marvelous photo gallery!

Below, we'll show you some of our favorites from photographers Alli Lamhing, Sunil Subramanian, Emily Ma, Emma Wishnow and Elizabeth Smith. To see many more, browse through the photo gallery!
