Frenship Art Students Earn Scholastic Art Awards

The Scholastic Art Contest is a national student art contest organized and sponsored by the Scholastic publishing company in New York. In West Texas, the regional contest recognizes hundreds of students in the region for their artwork.  

For the past 20 years, the regional contest was hosted by Wayland Baptist University in Plainview. This year the event has been passed over to the LHUCA art center with LISD helping. 

Students from all four Frenship middle schools and the high school earned recognition from the Regional Scholastic Contest. Artwork that receives a Gold Key award at the regional contest is automatically entered into the national contest, where judges from New York look at thousands of entries to select work for the national show. 

The majority of entries represent the best student work from selected class assignments and projects. 

“When teachers and students view the show, it is great to see and be inspired by all the creative ideas from area schools,” said Joey Maclean, Visual Arts Coordinator for Frenship ISD. 

Artwork from students who earned a Silver Key or Gold Key award will be displayed at the April First Friday Art Trail in the LHUCA Icehouse. There will be 27 works of art from Frenship students including both high school and middle school entries. 

Everyone is invited to see the show this Friday during the First Friday Art Trail from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the LHUCA Icehouse. The awards ceremony will be on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
