GRFA Art Contest Luncheon

Thank you to everyone who attended the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts 2010 Art Contest Luncheon on March 27, 2010 at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans.

We would especially like to congratulate Sean Hicks from Hackberry High School in Hackberry, Louisiana for taking the first place prize of a $5,000 college scholarship.

Overall, we had over 300 entrants into our contest from all over the state of Louisiana in our first year. Thank you to everyone who entered and to all of the teachers and parents who encouraged the talented high school seniors of Louisiana to participate.

Sixteen finalists attended our luncheon. The top 10 received college scholarships ranging from $500 to $5,000. And, we awarded each finalist a $250 gift certificate for art supplies and an original silkscreen print by George Rodrigue entitled "Ain't Dat Super: We Blues Dem Away".

Again, thank you to everyone from the GRFA staff for making our first annual GRFA Art Contest such a success!

More photos from the event and a list of all of our winning entries available on the GRFA website.
