The winners included Emma Brown, a freshman at Indiana University, Zachary Hahn, a freshman at the Pennsylvania State University, Karli Himmerlich, a junior at Florida State University,  and Ebone McNeil, a freshman at George Fox University.  Each winner received a check for $100 plus a Navy Supply Corps Foundation thumbdrive.
