The students participated in two areas of the art exhibit, two-dimensional art and three-dimensional art, and two areas in the salon, monochromatic/black and white and color.

Sophomore Lilia Lorenzo received best in show for her drawing in the two-dimensional art fourth division.

Sophomore Brandy Takiguchi also entered in this category and received an honorable mention.

There were several students entered in the three-dimensional category in both divisions.

Senior Zoe Pelayo received second place in the fifth division for her ceramic strawberry and Senior Riley Shiraishi received fourth place for her interpretive piece Musubis.

It was a clean sweep in the fourth division. Sophomore  Lopaka Kealiinohomoku, Brissa Christopherson and Sophomore Kyle Fushikoshi-Wago received first, second and third place.

In the Salon of Photography, Senior Lindsay Watson was awarded second place for Free Fall, a photo.
