BCS NAMED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GRAND CHAMPION IN ART CONTEST FOR THIRD YEAR IN A ROW
For the third consecutive year, Bethesda Christian School has been selected as the Elementary School Grand Champion in the Star-Telegram Stock Show Art Contest.
Fourteen BCS students and their art teacher, Anna Gill, were recognized at an awards ceremony held Jan. 6 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 nameplate engraved with school’s name was added to the contest’s traveling trophy.
"I am deeply grateful to the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo volunteers and sponsors for providing an opportunity for students to showcase their artwork," stated Gill. "Likewise, I am abundantly grateful to Bethesda Christian School Administrators, who are highly supportive of the arts, encouraging the creativity of our students and allowing me the same kind of creative freedom. Bethesda parents also deserve credit for their support of the Arts and the overall success of their students. Mostly, I am SO proud of our elementary students who give their best each time they get a chance to create. You did it again!"
Students whose artwork was recognized in the contest were: Alley Vaughn, Cade Edens, Christian Lawler, Dylan Hardisty, Eisley McCarthy, Ellie Hull, Elliot Hamilton, Emerie Jones, Faithlynn Beckwith, Haven Heron, Kennedi Burnham, Nicholai Burgess, Scott Childs and Zachariah Brandes.
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 2018 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, which concludes on Feb. 2.
