Orangefield High School art students participated in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Art Contest. Judges and Scholarship Committee members from Houston came to view and evaluate the artwork at Evadale High School. The artwork was submitted from eight area districts for the contest.

Winning Best of Show was Josh Juneau from Orangefield High School. His pencil drawing was titled “The Grass is Greener.” He received rodeo tickets, a trophy, and several scholarship applications. His original drawing was taken to Houston for display during the rodeo.

Winning a Gold Medal for her Prismacolor drawing, “Grand Champion Dreams,” was Rachel Reed. She received several scholarship applications and her original drawing is also on display in Houston.

Also receiving a Gold Medal was Alison Yu for her acrylic painting “Summer Rhapsody.” Alison is a junior this year and not eligible for scholarships, yet, but her artwork is on display in Houston for the rodeo.

Along with these winners, there were several other finalists from Orangefield, as well as many Blue Ribbon winners. 

Orangefield students also participated in a sculpture contest for the Houston Rodeo. Several students won ribbons. Taylor Wallace and Logan Bonds received scholarship information from that show. The Orangefield High School art teacher is Ms. Sherry Windham.
