A ceremony will be held Feb. 5 to award the prizes and give out certificates to everyone who participated in the contest. The ceremony will be held at  6:30 p.m. at the Maple Valley library.

The Maple Valley library will be displaying a number of the submissions starting on Feb. 1.

Honorable mentions were Sami Miller, Victor Wang, Lauren Williams, Issabella Dedomenico and Cora (Cami) Alice Fairbanks.

Over 80 pieces were submitted to the Lake Wilderness Arboretum's art contest.
