This year, there were 46 private and Christian schools represented. The competition was for elementary through high school, with 900 pieces of artwork entered. CCS elementary students won nine blue ribbons, five red ribbons and had one finalist in the competition.
The placement of the ribbons is as follows:
- A white ribbon can be considered as “good.”
- A red ribbon can be considered as “better.”
