Winners were as follows:
Glenbard North: Kimberly Flores
Glenbard South: Alyssa Lee Rumel
Glenbard East: Maggie Angst
Glenbard West: Catherine Larrabee

Winners received a DAR Good Citizen pin, certificate, wallet recognition card, and patriotic gifts. Winners are automatically entered to compete at the District level. National winners receive a monetary scholarship.
