Two students from the Harlandale ISD were honored as finalists in the 2019 Texas Cavaliers River Parade Art Contest during a press conference held at the Southwest School of Art on March 6.

With only 11 art pieces selected out of more than 2,000 entries, it is an outstanding achievement for Genesis Verdines, a fifth-grader at Columbia Heights Elementary representing City Council District 5, and Isabella Martinez, a fourth-grader from Rayburn Elementary representing City Council District 3.   

As finalists, both students earned their school’s art program $3,000 and each received a scholarship to attend a weeklong summer art camp at the Southwest School of Art.

In addition, each student’s artwork will be featured in this year’s Texas Cavaliers’ River Parade Program, and they will both compete for the Grand Prize that could earn their school an additional $2,000 for a grand total of $5,000!

King Antonio congratulated the students while their teachers, administrators and parents congratulated them on a job well done.

Schulze Elementary fifth-grader Joanna Betancourt and Columbia Heights Elementary fourth-grader Julie Villarreal were selected as runner-ups and both received a check for $1,000 for their school.

Way to go, art students!
