In the middle school category, Maricopa Wells eighth-grader Ana Ozuna Alcazar won first place. Second place went to Maricopa Wells eighth-grader Brittany Price and Desert Wind eighth-grader Jonathan Perez won third place.

First place in the high school category went to senior Camille Rustaert. Senior Miguel Gonzalez won second place and senior Bianca Sharpe came in third place.
