Some students were taken by surprise when finding out they placed. Others, went into the competition confidentiality.

“I was doubtful but that’s only because I don’t work well on a tight time schedule.” Gardner said. “Actually, I didn’t like what I did, so in ten minutes I made a whole new piece.” Gardner said.

Opportunities like these give students the chance to meet new people whom share the same interests, and make memories while doing something they love.

“One of my favorite memories from the art show was playing on the merry-go-round with all my friends.” Baumhoff said.

Overall, the students loved taking part in the competition, and plan on going back again next year when the time comes for them to show of their artistic ability.
