The opening reception was on Thursday, Jan. 22 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The exhibition was ceramic-based and showcased many different pieces from 12 different area high schools. There were 35 different art pieces at the event, ranging from large pieces to very small constructions.

Professor James Ibur was the event curator and judge. After all sculptures were reviewed by Ibur he distributed awards. There were three honorable mentions, two second place winners and one overall winner. The overall winner took home a $250 prize and the two second place winners both took a $125 prize.
