Little Cypress Junior High art teacher, Donna Cole, has announced the names of her students who placed in the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Art Contest. Two students’ artworks were kept at the show for display during the run of the rodeo. Eighth-grader, Jonah Courtier, earned “Best of Show” and seventh grader, Shailee Wats, won “Gold Medal.”

According to Ms. Cole, “Students began creating their plans for their work at the beginning of November, choosing between graphite, Prismacolors, and acrylic as their medium. They worked steadily through December to finalize the project.” She added, “We are very grateful to Bickie Coffey of College Station, who through “Donor’s Choose” provided the Prismacolors needed to produce vibrant color for those who chose that medium.”
