Winners include: Jessica Visco with 1st place in t-shirt design. In photography, Amanda Renaldo took 2nd place and Delacie Neaverth was 3rd.

The school won third place in the “cardboard chair” event: Tim Mahany, Matt Sokolowski and Conner Moran built a chair that could hold a 250 pound man for more than five minutes.
