Third through fifth grade students from American Heritage Academy in Camp Verde, Beaver Creek Elementary, Camp Verde Elementary, Verde Valley Montessori, Clarkdale-Jerome Elementary, Cottonwood Elementary, Mt. View Preparatory, Verde Valley Christian School and St. Joseph's Catholic School participated. Our staff selected the top designs in the three grade categories and one grand prize winner overall.
