Other top photographers included Jordyn Miller from Oak Ridge High School in second place; Christian Rodriguez from Willis High School in third place; and Nick Harmon from Oak Ridge High School with honorable mention.

 

The judging committee, comprised of professional photographers, selected the top three photos. Winning photographers received Shop Etc. Gift Cards from The Woodlands Mall, including $100 for first place; $75 for second place; $50 for third place; and $25 for honorable mention.
