What our judges said:
"What fun, the kids put a lot of thought into their work and
it was a difficult task picking my 3 favorites."
"Congrats and thank you to all the students who participated.
I looked at each and every one of the pieces and learned plenty!"
"The children all did such a nice job! Choosing was harder
than I thought it would be."
Many thanks to all the children, teachers, the voting public
and our panel of judges.
