Artwork by 11 elementary, middle and high school students in Spring Branch ISD will be on public display in Hayloft Gallery at Reliant Park during the upcoming Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. The Rodeo will be held this year from March 3-22. 

The student finalists were named after SBISD hosted its annual K-12 Rodeo Art Exhibit at the Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum, which drew hundreds of students and family members during a public viewing and official Rodeo judging session earlier this month.
