The grand prize went to Mark Cummins, Lorraine Murphy, Stuart Redmond, Alison Squire and Cian Wilson for Daedalusal 4. These students are 12th graders at Blackrock College, (a high school) and St. Joseph of Cluny School in Dublin, Ireland. Congratulations!

Note: for the rest of the prizes there were individual, team/small group (consisting of 2-6 students) and large group (from 7-35 students) awards for two groups: 6-9th grade and 10-12th grade. Team members are listed by submission. There were a number of ties. The quantity and quality of artwork submitted this year enabled us to offer a new division based on artistic merit.
