State Fair Art Winners

State Fair Student Art Entries

2009 Arizona State Fair proved to be a tremendous success for Greenway Art, Photo and 3D Design students.  “There were more top awards this year than any in the nine years I’ve been here at Greenway”, says  art teacher Michelle Benson, “and that speaks directly for the amount of talent our students have as well as the opportunities they are getting from having a strong visual arts program.”    This year 18 students entered  more than 25 pieces of work in the fair which is judged in several categories.  Awards are rated “Best of Show”, Rosette, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and honorable mention.  Due to the fair being held in the fall each year, seniors from the previous school year are allowed to enter.  So seniors in Art, Photo and 3D Design classes this year will may enter their work in the 2010 Arizona State Fair, see your teacher for more information!  Some top award recipients are
