Students placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each category will be revealed on November 4. Those students will receive a certificate and a prize valued $50 (1st place),  $25 (2nd place) and $10 (3rd place).

Each student placed 1st in their category will also receive a GRAND PRIZE: a donation of $250 for their school Art Department to recognize the department for their great work with their students and help them do more in their incredible art program. If the student placed 1st is homeschooled or is enrolled in a private school, the grand prize will be donated to a local non-profit organization dedicated to the arts.
