St.Mary Art Class Excels In Competition

Saint Mary Catholic School 7th and 8th grade students worked the entire month of November and December to prepare for the Houston Livestock Show Rodeo and Youth Art Completion. This is the fourth largest Youth Art Show in the nation.  Last year the Rodeo received more than 200,000 entries from across Texas making the total more than 9.2 million entries recorded since 1965. For more than 50 years students have been entering the School Arts Program.  Saint Mary’s students enter the Private School Art Show held on January 8, 2018 at the NRG Center.

 Saint Mary submitted 14 entries. The entries are based on the school student population in both elementary and junior high categories. Our school did “Outstanding”!   We had six Second Place entries, six First Place entries, one Special Award for Watercolor and a Gold Medal winner.  Maggie Granger, the Gold Medal winner, was one of three at the junior high level selected from the private sector show.  Her art will be exhibited the duration of the rodeo. She will also be eligible to compete for a scholarship to the Glassell School of Arts in Houston, Texas. We are proud of all our students.
