In the 13-17-year-old category, Sergio Reyes took first and Jamie Parsons second.
In age 10-12, Alice Zanmiller placed first, followed by McKinley Kitts and Connal Rea. Among artists aged 6-9, Chloe Hight took first, Delaney Rea second and Ellie, Gracie and Miranda Starr third.
In the age 3-5 group, Callie Crumpacker was first and Russel Grim second. In the under 3 category, Maya Rayle took first.
Special awards go to Grace Grim — Cutest Animal; Sullivan Mackintosh — Most Happy Sun and Moon; Ellery Hight — Most Happy Dancing Pumpkin; and artist known only as “Sam, Jesse and Lucas” — Most Happy Day
Awards and prizes will be presented to all participants at the First Friday on Nov. 1. Please see photos, page B14.
