Congratulations to Northbrook Middle School students Danna Nguyen and Thanh Tran, and Spring Branch Middle School student Kellen Kroger on being named finalists in the Bayou City Art Festival’s 2017 Direct Energy Middle School Art Competition People’s Choice Awards!  

We’re #SBProud that three of the 30 finalist are from Spring Branch schools! This year’s competition was fierce with over 320 student entries. SBISD had a total of 30 student participants.

Danna, Thanh and Kellen’s artwork, along with the other 27 student finalists, will be on display at the Bayou City Art Festival in Memorial Park on March 24-26. Make sure to mark your calendar for the celebration. 

The student art competition is supported in partnership by the Art Colony Association and Bayou City Art Festival. Spring Street Studios held a viewing of all 320 pieces of student artwork. View photos here.

Between now and then, go online and show your #SBPride by voting for your favorite piece of student art. One winner will be named the People’s Choice Winner on March 26 at the festival.
