LC-M students winners in 28th Annual Protégé' Contest

LITTLE CYPRESS — Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School visual artists have been busy this semester preparing their work for various contests. The 28th Annual Protégé' Contest, held at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) and sponsored by Market Basket, had its awards on Thursday, Feb. 20.

There were 122 area seniors who entered the contest and the judge, a professor of Art from TSU in Houston, selected 21 as accepted pieces in the show. Both Ivy Casteel, with her handmade necklace, and Emily St. John, with her painted chair, made this select group.

Five Honorable Mentions, including Ivy Casteel, received a $50 gift certificate from Michael's. Emily St. John was among the top three winners in the competition, and will receive a four-year scholarship to Lamar University and a $150 gift certificate from Michael's.

According to Betsy Kaufman, LC-M art teacher, “I am so proud of Emily and Ivy's talent and hard work. I have signed up to have the 21 top pieces that are now a traveling exhibit, to be on display at the LC-M library from March 24 through March 28.”

Another contest that has kept students busy creating is the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Art Contest. These pieces go through several rounds of competition before winners are announced. Two of LC-M’s Gold Medal Winners and one Best of Show are still in a competition, which will result in winners being included in an art auction.

Students participating in the Rodeo Art contest are, from left to right, Bailey Burnett-Gold Medal winner, Rachel Schick - second place ribbon, Alexis Snyder - first place ribbon, Kevin Henderson- first place ribbon, Brianna Cart - first place ribbon, Kirty Weatherly - Gold Medal winner, Shannon Boozer – third place ribbon and Emily St. John-Best of Show.
