First place winners and honorable mentions were named in four grade level divisions: 5-6th, 7-8th, 9-10th and 11-12th.

Here are this year’s winners!

Photographer's Statement:

When I look to the forest, I see art. Beavers are the artists of the forest. Using raw materials provided by the forest, they change the forest’s appearance into beautiful landscapes by channeling the waterways. We forget that even the beavers drastically change how our forest is today.
