Kindergarten through second-graders who entered the visual arts division are Samantha Esposito, Rebecca Perbetsky, Max Pettis and Laura Swann. The third- through fifth-grade visual artists are Sarah Brown, Jaime Fields, Katie Connelly and Rebecca Switzer. Lykara Charters entered the music competition.

Photography was popular with students in all grades, including Kenny Bahr, Kiarra Graves, Jacqueline Snyder, Sarah Ward, Amanda Brady, April Douville and Autumn Goad.
