More than 500 pieces by middle school and high schoolers from 15 schools were on display at Sedona Red Rock High School's cafeteria for the 23rd annual Northern Arizona Student Art Show April 27-28. The students competed in 11 categories, with top works earning money.

Two Verde Valley School students won Best of Show in both the 3D and 2D categories. Ilya Filatov's "Raku Bowl" won the ceramics division, judge's choice and a special award from the Sedona Arts Center. Ilya's other ceramic piece, "The Boot" won $100 from SAC's Ceramics Department. Meanwhile, over in the two-dimensional categories, Ziren Yin took the top prize with a diptych of two portraits.

Flagstaff High School's Savannah Stegall received the $750 Senior Scholarship award from the Northern Arizona Watercolor Society, which sponsors the show each year.

SRRHS student Sophie Copenhaver's photographic portrait of "Don" received a prize of $100 from El Valle Artists' Association for "Best Art Depicting the Verde Valley."

And, proving it's in the eye of the beholder, Mingus Union High School's Dalia Magadan Solano received the People's Choice Award ($50) for her drawing "Fierce" after the judges gave her honorable mention.

MUHS student Aubrey Wilson took first place in the 11th-12th grade category in painting for "Face Down." In watercolor, Melissa Amis, also of MUHS, took first with "What Lies Beneath." Camp Verde High School's Ellie Caudill won the 9th-10th grade category in watercolor with "Birds in Flight."

In drawing, Kimberly Cobarrubias of MUHS won the 11th-12th grade category with "The Rock," while fellow Marauder Annaleia Moreau won the 9th-10th grade category with "Hip Hop." MUHS also won both high school categories in pastels, as Ruby Tafari won for "Sister" and Tristan Hillman won for "Full Figure Flex."

SRRHS student Sophia Licher took first in photography with "Bee's Life."
