Thirty-eight students in grades 9-12 from Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Stafford and Westmoreland county particpated in this year's show. The talent is immense, the art is phenomenal and difficult choices were made. Local artist, Johnny Johnson, generously donated his time to judge the grades 11 and 12 contestants. Those artists experienced the other side of an art show and were the judges for those in grades 9-10.
