Students Iris Garibay and Tanner Callis both entered some of their artwork into a scholastic art competition, and both ended up with positive results.
Each of the students were awarded the Silver Key Award in the Eastern Kansas Scholastic Art Awards Exhibition.
Receiving a Silver Key Award is equivalent to earning a second place prize.
“The ranking goes gold key, silver key, honorable mention,” Garibay said.
There were different pieces from all over sent into the exhibition.
“The entries had to get past a qualifying round,” Callis said. “Meaning that not all art pieces entered place/ win awards.”
Garibay believes this contest helped her to see what sort of art appealed to different people, and that it could help her in future competitions or commissions she might take part in.
Both Garibay and Callis encourage entering these types of competitions.
“Enter any contest that you can,” Callis said. “You might surprise yourself and/or become more available for more opportunities.”
