Patsy received silver in this event. Shelby Payne, Brandi Short, and Olivia Rigby, grade 11, competed in Interior Design, they had to form a plan, a budget, and meet their clients’ needs.

The girls received a silver rating. Grant Veerkamp competed in Recycle and Redesign. He had to use things that are recycled and make them into a new product. Grant received gold.
