Twenty Quail Valley Middle School (QVMS) students from all three grade levels competed at the Junior VASE Art Competition earlier in May. The Jr. VASE (Visual Arts Scholastic Event) contest is held to recognize exemplary student achievement in visual art through individual and original expression.
Fifteen QVMS students received a four (Gold) rating. All Gold Medal students are then judged for a Superior rating, which is a perfect score. Three QVMS students were awarded Superior medals, and each grade level was represented.
More than 600 contestants from the Houston and surrounding area participated in the competition.
Superior Medals were awarded to: Rifaa Tajani – 6th grade; Chris Oxley (two superior medals) – 7th grade; and Anton Zhou – 8th grade.
Gold Medal winners were: Katherine Bartos; Catherine Huang; Candice Ma; Madison Panetti ; Joyce Wang; Emma Watson; Lilian Yang (two gold medals); Rifaa Tajani; Anton Zhou; and Christon Tan.
