Seven Walnut Springs Elementary students had pieces of art recognized at the Texas Elementary Art Meet (TEAM), a contest for schools in Region 13. The Texas Art Education Association sponsors the annual competition; that is the same organization that hosts the VASE (Visual Arts Scholastic Event) for high school students.
Third-grader Yajaira Pinon received the highest level of recognition, receiving a “Top of TEAM” medal. Only 10 percent of entries received this honor.
Earning “Exemplary” Medals were: Stefi Bjeletich (fifth grade), Madi Gmur (fourth grade), Payton Richards (fifth grade), Aspan Scott (fifth grade) and Harper Teague (fourth grade). Fifth-grader Levi Houston received a “Good” ribbon.
