Four local youngsters were judged winners in Civility First's third annual art contest.

The Whidbey Island-based group aimed at combating the divisive language and hate speech permeating our society.

Pacific Northwest Art School officials judged the entries, each created to help expand understanding and insights about what it means to be respectful and kind to others.
