Saint Mary Catholic School student Grace Wimberley, a 6th grader, won First Place in a recent art contest at the Shangri La Gardens.  

Over 150 images were submitted for this contest as part of the Shangri La Gardens’ Eco-Fest and Butterfly Release event.  

Her original hand-drawn work was chosen for the front cover of the Schedule of Classes for the 2019-2020 for all Teachers in SE Texas and Louisiana.

Grace was also the State-Wide Grand Prize Winner for the Treasures of the Texas Coast through the Texas General Land Commission.  

In this contest, her artwork was first out of 3,900 entries and she won trips to New Braunfels, Texas, for her whole class.  

Congratulations to this budding artist.
