Utah students win scholarships in art contest

Eight Utah students have each won a $1,000 college savings scholarship in the 2022 Make Your Mark bookmark contest. The contest, sponsored by my529, invited students throughout the state to create an original bookmark design.

Winning entries were chosen by judges, with two winners from each of four age categories.

Grades K-3

The winners in grades K-3 were Grace, a second-grade student at American Preparatory Academy charter school in Bluffdale, whose entry was selected by Utah Governor Spencer Cox; and Ryder, a third-grade student in Alpine School District, whose entry was selected by First Lady Abby Cox. 

Grades 4-6

Zamira, a fifth-grade home school student from American Fork, and Sai, a fifth-grade student at American Preparatory Academy charter school in South Jordan, submitted the winning entries judged by Maegan Castleton, the Utah Division of Multicultural Affairs graphic lead and program specialist.

Grades 7-8

Winners in grades 7-8 are Kezia, an eighth-grader in the Granite School District, and Jared, an eighth-grader in the Alpine School District. Entries for this category were selected by Kim Ziebarth, the Utah State System of Higher Education associate commissioner of technical education.

Grades 9-12

The winning entries in the high school category are Alyssa, an 11th-grader in the Granite School District, and Susannah, a 12th-grader in the Logan School District. Entries were judged by Ali Hagen, one of the winners of the 2016 Make Your Mark contest.
