Congratulations to Maria Simpson and Marina Servin, two BISD art students who brought home coveted awards in the Rodeo Quick Draw Competition held February 25th, an event sponsored by the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.
Students are limited to 50 minutes to draw from a live model in the Portrait or Full Figure categories. Awards for 1st -4th Place, Best of Show and Reserve Best of Show were awarded for each category. Maria earned 3rd place in the Portrait Class and Marina placed 4th in Full Figure Class.
Only 50 students can earn a spot to compete in this event, out of over 800 entries, so just making it to the competition was a big achievement. Only ten high school level awards are given in this very stiff competition.
Way to go Maria and Marina!
