Two Kamiak High School students are among 19 Snohomish County high school students who won the Schack Art Center’s 2017 Black & White Photography Contest.

The center received more than 175 entries, which were judged in two categories – grades 9-10 and grades 11-12 – by well-known photographers Berette Macaulay, Barbara Reed, and Lloyd Weller.

In the grades 11-12 category, Kamiak senior Charlotte Lee took first place with “Guatemala Mausoleum,” while fellow Kamiak senior Abigail Pugh took second with “Drowning.” Lake Stevens junior Abby Storwick took third in that category.

Meadowdale senior Sierra Buckley, Edmonds-Woodway senior Madelyn Rairdon, Snohomish seniors Maiya Cushing and Amber McCall, and Glacier Peak seniors Noelle Forkey and Peyton Young received honorable mentions in that category.

Edmonds-Woodway junior Peter Tsanev won the contest’s grand prize with “If You Didn't Get Dirty, You Didn't Play.”

In the grades 9-10 category, Lynnwood sophomore Doma Sherpa took first place with “Footsteps,” while Everett freshman Madeline Crist took second with “Monte Cristo Ghost Town” and Edmonds-Woodway sophomore Grayson LeCompte took third with “Defeat.”

Cascade sophomore Andrew Wugumgeg, Edmonds-Woodway sophomores Ashley Ortiz and Stephanie Rasar, and Edmonds-Woodway freshmen Angus Rate and Kate Swires received honorable mentions in that category.

The winning students will be honored at the Schack's spring Teen Night at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 13.
