Sharon Brewster, a junior, took just a random picture one day for Publications and titled it “Winter’s Grace.” When asked how she felt about winning, she said, “I feel awesome. I never thought that my work would be good enough to even go to the show, and the fact that I got second place is awesome!”
Junior Abby Perdue earned first place for her photo of junior Seth Steele sanding wood in the shop, titled “Smooth Progression.” When asked about winning a prize, Abby exclaimed, “I was shocked! I didn't think it was good enough, but it was so exciting that I got a ribbon!” Sophomore Anna Miller won Honorable Mention for Prints. “I was really excited because I didn't even expect to have my art submitted to the show!” Anna explained .
Junior Erin Scheer’s print received an Honorable Mention ribbon as well. Like the other winners, she was surprised to find out she had won a ribbon, saying, “I didn't even think she would take my print! I was very proud of it, though, and I am very happy.”
Not as many ribbons were awarded this year as in previous years, but still, Mrs Borcherding was very proud of students’ ribbons. “The art we took was on par with what was produced in previous years, but it’s always up to the judge. The judges each year have very different opinions on what is ribbon - worthy. I only bring art that I truly believe will win a ribbon. I was very happy for the girls that did win ribbons.”
