After multiple rounds of judging, a shortlist of 30 entries was identified and a winner selected from each of the following age groups:0 to 6 years, 7 to 11 years, and 12 to 15 years. Art supplies will be delivered to the three winners as well as certificates of participation to everyone who made the shortlist.
