In 1st Place – Bayshore Christian, 2nd Place – Bayside Academy and 3rd Place – Fairhope High School. The Art Departments work with the festival to coordinate a theme each year for the students to work on and then at the end of the festival, all schools are given a prize with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners receiving more for their art programs.
