Fifteen art students win Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo honors

Artwork by 15 Spring Branch ISD elementary, middle and high school students will hang soon in the public Hayloft Gallery at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.

In January, SBISD hosted its annual K-12 Rodeo Art Exhibit at the Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum, which drew hundreds of students and parents during a two-day viewing and later judging session. Students who were awarded Best of Show, Gold Medal or Special Merit by Rodeo officials will have their original art displayed in the Hayloft Gallery at Reliant Park. The Houston Rodeo this year will be held from Feb. 25 through March 17.

Photo reproductions of Best of Show, Gold Medal and Special Merit winners in SBISD, as well as original Runner Up student entries can be viewed in the lobby of the Wayne F. Schaper, Sr. Leadership Center (SBISD Administration Building), located at 955 Campbell Road.

During the Rodeo, several dozen student artworks from across the region will be chosen during Grand Prix judging for an art auction, which can result in thousands of scholarship dollars for a fortunate young artist or artists.
