The artwork of Mary Stirton and Reagan Berchtold was selected as one of the top 100 Finalists in the Picture the Music Art Contest by the St. Louis Symphony. Brody Knaust also received a Certificate of Merit.
Lower grades had the opportunity to enter the contest again this year by creating artwork based on John Williams’ 1984 ‘Olympic Fanfare and Theme’. The guidelines were for the students to creatively interpret this piece of music through art.
This year 11,797 students from 67 schools participated. Of these, over 426 entries were submitted, and two of our JPII students artwork were chosen to be in the top 100 Finalists.
Mary and Reagan were recognized at an awards ceremony and reception on February 26th at Powell Hall to honor the 100 Finalists. The artwork of the finalists was exhibited the evening of the ceremony and then moved to different locations throughout the St. Louis and St. Charles area.
Congratulations to Mary, Reagan and Brody!
