3x3 Student Show Winners Announced

Out of nearly 1,000 entries the judge's narrowed the entries down to just 45 winners. There were another 40 that just fell shy of being in the show. Judging was tough, pieces were graded on a 4-point system, 4 being best. Just to get into the show the majority of judges had to give the entry a 3 or 4; to be a medal winner a majority of the judges had to give the piece a 4 and to be awarded Best of Show more than a majority had to give the piece no less than 4 points. A complete list of the winners is online but here are this year's medalists:
