The People’s Choice Award was a three-way tie given to the Dunn Brothers. Jacob Dunn won best in the U14 category. Pages Book Emporium, represented by Abby and Christy Haarstad, were declared tops in the business category. Abby Haarstad won first place in the Scavenger Hunt.Kyra Jackson won second place in the Scavenger Hunt.
