Orangefield students finalist in art contest
The 9th annual Law Day Art Contest was held recently in Beaumont at the Federal Building. Seven hundred pieces of art were entered and 18 were selected as finalists. These finalists were honored last week at an awards ceremony and reception. Four finalists were Orangefield art students: Thanh Tsan, Shelby Williams, Tisha Merendino, and Lauren Smith. All four entries were framed and will hang in the Federal Building for the upcoming year. These finalists each received $50, a certificate, and their photo featured both online and in a Beaumont magazine. In addition, Shelby Williams’ work was selected as the 3rd place over-all winner and she received $500. All four were photographed and honored by the district and magistrate judges in Beaumont.
