The winners in the 7 to 9 category are: first, Chloe Blankenship, 8, Placerville; second, Ellery Zacharias, 9, Placerville; and third, Kacie Watson, 8, Camino.

The winners in the 10 to 12 category are: first, Autumn Fowler-Vogal, 10, Shingle Springs; second, Haley Marshall, 11, Placerville; and third, Ashley Tolbert, 10, Diamond Springs.
