We did it again! BCS named Elementary School Grand Champion in art contest

January 20, 2017


For the second consecutive year, Bethesda Christian School has been selected as the Elementary School Grand Champion in the Star-Telegram Stock Show Art Contest.

Fifteen BCS students and their art teacher, Mrs. Anna Gill, were recognized at an awards ceremony held January 7 in the Brown Lupton North Building, located at Fort Worth’s Will Rogers Memorial Center. Students received ribbons for the collective quality of their artwork, while BCS earned a $1000 cash prize for the Art Department. A name plate engraved with school’s name was added to the contest’s traveling trophy.

"We are so grateful for the opportunity the Star-Telegram Stock Show Art Contest provided our students to showcase their artistry," stated Mrs. Gill. "Thank you to all the students who worked diligently and used their talent to create award-winning art.  I am one very proud art teacher!"

Students whose artwork was recognized in the contest were: Clara Schneider, Clara Brown, Boden Curtis, Grady Henderson, Katie Banks, Chase Harden, Cole Hamilton, Echo Cranor, Emerie Jones, Alana Cooper, Kate Flanery, Avery Holdsclaw, Belicia Cox, Emily Smay and Grayson Guelker.

The artwork is currently on display in the concourse of the Will Rogers Memorial Center’s Amon G. Carter Jr. Exhibits Hall. The exhibit will run for the duration of the 2017 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, which concludes on February 4.
