Once again, the staff of Cooperative Living was wowed by the incredible display of talent in evidence in our annual Youth Art Contest. We look forward each year to seeing all of the creative and colorful entries, but choosing winners is a daunting task. Thank you to each and every one of our young artists ó you are all winners in our book!

An Honorable Mention goes to the following contest entrants:

Gerry Cruz, Samuel Lacks, Latrea Martin, Didi Pace, Rebecca Benson, Winter Ewer, Taylor Fix, Savannah Guest, Garren Hayes, Jenna Marie Hostetler, Harshitha Mattapally, Benjamin Musser, Isabel Parks, Carlee Wagstaff, Alexa Williams, Marie Williams, Summer Young, Jacob Barnard, Renee Brittigan, David Coates, Julia Cosby, Mariah House, Arabelle Reese, Katy Rivera, Dakota Shepherd, Alesha Bennett, Joshua Burkholder, Molly Brinson, Caitlin Coates, Adam Gough, Jacob Green, Brenna Mahn, Karley Meade, Arie Olivetto, Dayna Slusher, Donovan Williams, Taylor Baggett, Rachel Brooks, Juan Gabriel Crespo, Nuri Cruz, Julian Faison, Thomas Estep, Dominique Jones, Gabbi Osborne, Iovana Perez, Taylor Poore, Kevin Guest, Quaisha Reaves, Allison Seamster, Vikki Steinacker, Alesha Wimber, Ashley Beckham, Megan Childress, Kathryn Cotton, Kathie Beth Estep, Robert Lawrence, Alaina Mahn, Hannah Musser, Demarius Lee.

A panel of six judges pored over all the entries in six classifications in a very difficult task to choose the top three winners in each grade category.

The Best-in-Show entry, shown on the cover of this magazine, will receive a $100 check. The first-place winners in each of the six categories will receive $25 checks.

We would like to thank all of our talented young artists for the many wonderful entries. 

Editorís note: We had several excellent entries done in horizontal format that had to be eliminated. Contest specifications required entries to be in vertical format.
