From the 3,000 about 500 were chosen for the show and a small minority were awarded silver or gold keys. Of the 14 pieces of art work entered by the Jr. High, 6 were chosen by the judges to "place" in the show. This is a very high ratio for an extremely tough competition. Placing were drawings by Kristin Bien, Jason Kalsow, Michelle Lillibridge and Karissa Sartell; and watercolors by Dusty Isenhart and Michelle Lillibridge (silver key). This is a very great honor. Of the 31 pieces of art work entered by Huntley High School, 6 were also chosen to "place". Amanda Levinson's drawing received a gold key and will proceed to New York for national competition. Others placing were Mike McCoy, Stephanie Musgrave, Misty Welch (drawing and painting) and Kyle Williams.
