During the reception, winners will be announced and awarded their respective cash prizes.
There are separate first, second and third place cash prizes for students in the junior high division and the senior high division. The cash prizes are as follows:

The student whose artwork is chosen as "The Best in Show" will have their work hung in the Hall of Fame for one year. In addition to this honor, the teacher representing the winning student will be awarded a free field trip to the Hall of Fame for the 2014-15 school year.
More than 270 middle and high school students from Region 16 participated in the show, but only the top 150 pieces were chosen to be hung in the Hall of Fame, based on the quality of artwork, as well as the essay.
