Contest Winners

Hooray for our ‘Sun Safe’ Art Contest Winners!

The contest was open to students in grades 6-12 at all schools in the Tucson area. All the impressive entries made judging difficult for a panel of judges from the University of Arizona. A first, second and third place winner was chosen from both middle and high school categories.

Our first, second, and third place winning students are listed below along with images of their submissions! Come to our 8th annual ‘Living in Harmony with the Sun’ event on Saturday, June 8th from 4-8pm, where these winning submissions will be featured!
