Friends of Attwater Prairie Chicken Refuge announced the following winners of the Student Festival Art Contest 2018. Awards were presented at Sealy Junior High on May 7.

The contest was open to any student in Brazos, Bellville, Columbus, Rice or Sealy school districts, and prizes were awarded in three divisions. The goal of the contest is to engage the power of art to help youth feel more connected with nature.

First-place winners received a $50 prize and plaque; second-place winners got $25 and a ribbon; and third-place winners got a $10 prize and ribbon. Honorable mentions were given to students to recognize outstanding artwork.

The annual grand prize log winner was awarded a plaque, T-shirt made from their own artwork and a $250 scholarship to be awarded upon verification of enrollment in a university, college or trade school. Student art T-shirts were sold at the 2018 Attwater’s Prairie Chicken Festival.
