High School Students Participated in NCC Art Day

On Wednesday, April 12th, ten high school art students participated in the Nebraska Capitol Conference Art Day. This year’s NCC Art Day was hosted by Louisville High School. 
The day included a presentation and activity, led by Mindy Burton, an artist and full-time art teacher at Milford High School. The students displayed work in eleven different categories, and three judges spent over two hours critiquing the work. 
Every student from Fort Calhoun received at least one award, and most of them received multiple awards. Brooke Johnsen was voted the top artist from Fort Calhoun. She also received the People’s Choice Award and the Student’s Choice Award. Brooke also received the top award of Best In Show for her entry “Reflecting”. Congratulations to all the students who participated.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
