On Wednesday May 1, select members of art accompanied by Mr. Brian Burns, LHS art instructor, travelled to Ottawa University to participate in the Frontier League art competition. Members who attended were Madison Svoboda (senior), Rhiannon Morey (senior), Evan Murphy (junior), Rayna Jones (sophomore), Samuel Bradley (junior), Kaitlyn Leikam (junior), Emma Jorgensen (junior), Hailee Drake (senior), and Sage Bogdanowicz (junior).

“You never know how you will do at League because judges like different things, but I have a very talented class that worked diligently with great craftsmanship,” Burns said.

Out of 34 ribbons, the LHS group won 11. This means that LHS students won first place in the League tournament beating Spring Hill who had gone undefeated for approximately 8 years.

“It was nice because the last two years we got second place and we finally brought home the dub. It was a good ending to my senior year,“ senior Madison Svoboda said.

Generally, students who participate in League are juniors and seniors who are in Pro Art. They can create their own art and consult with Mr. Burns about what pieces they are entering into the competition.

“They must be open to my responses and to change or improve ideas and craftsmanship,” Burns said.

Students can enter individual pieces of art and also can work together on other competitions. They can work together to compete in events such as a sidewalk chalk competition.

“When I finally finished the sidewalk competition, my fingers were raw and I had chalk on my face, but it was totally worth it,” Svoboda said.

Svoboda won 3 ribbons, Drake won 2 ribbons, Jorgensen won 1 Best of Show ribbon, Bogdanowicz won 1 ribbon, Bradley won 1 ribbon. Two other students had pieces entered as well even though they didn’t attend the competition. Dawson Detherage (junior) won 2 ribbons, 1 Best of Show and Nicole Crane (freshman) won 1 ribbon.
