Among the numerous entries, judges chose three local winners.  Best in Show - Katherine Young-Beck; First Place in Digital Art - Scott McDonald; and First Place in Sketch Art - Greg Hauss.  Sponsored prizes of $1000 and $500 were awarded to the recipients along with award certificates.

The winning artworks will be showcased in public buildings throughout Kern County in 2012, used at Kern COG outreach events, and posted on the agency’s website at
