Jan. 23, 2018—CFISD’s winners in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) School Art Program were announced this week after two judging rounds featuring art teachers and professors, and members of the Texas Art Education Association board chose the top artwork from CFISD student artists. The selections have been taken to NRG Arena for the next level of the contest.

A total of 11 winners were selected in the High School, Middle School and Elementary divisions that will be displayed in the Hayloft Gallery at NRG Center during the HLSR, Feb. 27-March 18.

For a final round, five judges comprised of the Texas Art Education Association board members and art education professors were brought in.
