The winners included Jenna Geers for Theme Development, Student Life and Sports; Bradlee Locke for Academics; Lauren Kennedy for Clubs and Organizations; Cameron Wilson for People; and Joanna Sowell for Advertising and Index.

Shawnee Mission Northwest High School in Shawnee, Kan., had two Sweepstakes winners in the Class A category – Nikki Bisht for People and Annie Unruh for Graphics.
