The Baker Orange recorded 10 first-place honors.

Chansi Long, Sedan, and Chris Smith, Overland Park, teamed up for second-place honor. A group project by Servaes, Smith and Zack Rockey, Udall, placed third.

During an on-site competition open to all four-year college students, Stauffer placed second in copy editing. Servaes and Lauren Anderson, Gardner, both received honorable mention.
