Students were grouped into four grade categories. You can view the winning art on Oro Valley's Facebook page:

Kindergarten through 2nd grade category:
• Winner: Anita Lu (Casas Christian School) 
• Runner-up: Cameron Sparks (Casas Christian School)

All of the winners will be recognized at the May 7 Council Meeting, 6 p.m. at Oro Valley Town Hall.

The four, first-place winners get $100 in OV Dollars, a family four-pack to the Oro Valley Aquatic Center, and lunch with Mayor Hiremath. Runners-up get family four packs to the Aquatic Center, and all eight entries will be featured on the Town's website, social media and displayed in Council Chambers at Town Hall for the Month of May.

Additionally, 9th-12th grade winner Jenna Hurst was named winner of the 2014 Congressional Art Competition for District 2. Her art work, a different piece than her entry for the "Life in OV" contest, will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.
