Works of art by 14 Spring Branch ISD elementary, middle and high school students will be displayed soon inside the public Hayloft Gallery at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Last month, SBISD hosted its annual K-12 Rodeo Art Exhibit at the Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum. The district student art exhibit attracted hundreds of students and families for viewing periods, which also included a Rodeo judging session.

SBISD art students awarded Best of Show, Gold Medal or Special Merit by Rodeo judges will have their works displayed in the Hayloft Gallery at NRG Park from March 7-26.

During the Rodeo, several dozen student artworks from across the region will be chosen for Grand Prix judging, a famed art auction which can result in substantial student scholarships.
