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

Path into the forest

Photographer's Statement:

When I look into the forest I see a path that leads into the forest. When you cross over a path it takes you to a new place. When I cross over a bridge into the forest I am taken to a new place; the forest where I can enjoy nature. When I look into the forest I see a bridge to carry people from one place to another.
