The winning artists were acknowledged in a ceremony hosted by Mayor Joe Krovoza at the Davis Art Center last month.
Among children in grades K-3, first place went to Zachary Hoblit, second place to Ella Obegi and third place to Arami Colman.
Among children in grades 4-6, Nu Ri Lee took first place, Arianna Rosenberg took second and Rachel Fort won third.
First-place winners received $75 gift cards to The Avid Reader, a month of free classes at Baciarini’s Martial Arts, free YoloBerry frozen yogurt, a $25 B&L Bike Shop gift card and more. Second- and third-place winners received prizes as well.
