For Most Imaginative in the K-7 category, Shyloh Watchorn won for her multi-media forest. Most Imaginative for Grades 8 to 12 was Agassiz Secondary’s Zoel Jackson.

For Most Colourful, the awards went to Alexis Starr (K-7, Kent Elementary), for her kaleidoscope image of colours and shapes, and Samantha Morrison (8-12, Agassiz Secondary).

Most Playful went to Constance Ngo (K-7, Kent Elementary) and Atlee Fox (8-12, Agassiz Secondary). Fox’s drawing of Groot, the tree-like Marvel character made popular by the Guardians of the Galaxy films, was a playful depiction of the character with a rainbow of positive words behind him.

Most Dramatic went to Brooke Anderson (K-7, Kent Elementary) and Carys Bolan (8-12, Agassiz Secondary).
