15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A group of Burmese students crowd together for a portrait in a Mandalay classroom.
The classrooms at Phaung Daw Oo are crowded, as the school accommodates some 10,000 students in its tight campus, roughly the size of a city block. The students, however, rarely showed signs of being overwhelmed, even in the midday summer heat in Mandalay. Noise was as ubiquitous as smiling faces, as the photo represents.
