Each year, three winners are selected in each of the three age categories (4-7 years; 8-11 years; and 12-15 years), with judging based on artistry, uniqueness, and execution of concept: Gold Award (first place), Silver Award (second place); and Bronze Award (third place). This year, the judges also gave an Honorable Mention Award in each age category.

The three-round competitive selection process to determine the winners required careful review. After assessing all eligible entries, 100 were selected in the first round as the U.S. Semi-Finalists (30 each for two age categories, 40 for the remaining one). The second round resulted in 31 U.S. Finalists, which were reviewed in the third and final round by a panel of 12 judges tasked to decide on nine U.S. Winners. For the first time, Honorable Mention Awards were given one youth in each of the three age categories.
