Three Beattie middle school eighth-grade girls placed in the contest.

Naomi Shaha came in third place, Isabella Ruiz placed second and Alexis Ngyen won first place.

For high schoolers, Citrus Valley senior Khai Nguyen won the contest with his poster which is now hanging outside of Superintendent Mauricio Arellano’s office.
