Voting contest winners!

Here are the final results from our poll! Several of the races were very close to the end, and with others, the leader pulled away during the final week.

Winners are in bold - these are the top vote-getters who together comprised at least 50% of the total vote for that category. Other places and events that aren't bolded may still end up in the coloring book - we have 48 pages to fill! - but the ones in bold have secured their spot by popular vote.
