Judges this year were Mr. Eric Bork, Dr. Paul Bube, Dr. Jeremy Chapman, Dr. Anthony Grafton, Dr. Terrell Tebbetts, and Dr. Nikki Yonts.

Following the poster presentations there were four oral presentations by Marissa Ayers and Hannah Templin, Rebecca Philpott, Logan Hunt, and Jordan Trant. Dr. Melissa Taverner then gave a keynote speech while the judges made their final deliberations.
The second runner-up for the poster presentations was Makala White, first runner-up was Alice Bewley and Luke Shackleford, and Ian Hall received first place.
