Out of 5,000 entries from across the country, only 68 students won awards in this year’s national competition.

“From the moment I saw Mali’s photo, I knew it was an award winner,” said Jan Saquella, Red Mountain yearbook adviser. “I’m so proud of Mali’s accomplishment.”

Mali’s photo will appear in Red Mountain’s 2014 Pinnacle yearbook.
