Winners were selected based on total votes registered. The contest ended Feb. 14 with a total of 17,979 votes recorded.

Ahwatukee Foothills’ St. John Bosco won second place with 2,433 votes and was given $5,000. The second place winner of the high schools was Seton Catholic Prep in Chandler, with 473 votes and winning $2,500.
