On Wednesday, January 18, six art students at Trego Community High School were asked to attend the annual art competition. This year’s competition took place at Hill City High School.
Each school was allowed to bring up to six students to compete. Students were required to complete an art piece with the theme “Technology Growth and Advancement from 1910 to Modern Day.” All groups were given a blank canvas and three hours to create and complete their finished piece with only ten minutes of advice from their instructor once the work had begun. After the three hours were up, the final work was judged by Joel Dugan, who attends FHSU.
Although Trego didn’t take a place this year, everyone agreed that it was a great learning experience. After being asked what her favorite part about attending the art show, Katie Ward responded with, “being able to communicate with everyone.”
Overall, everyone had a great time and enjoyed competing against the other schools.
Those students who attended were Brandon Swart, Katie Ward, Cambrie Kemp, Emmitt Owens, Valerie Scott, and Ruchi Bhakta.

Making his last year memorable, Owens is spending time with friends and making sure he makes his last high school year the best he can. Owens stated” I’m hanging with friends on the weekends, and living everyday to the fullest.”
Thinking back on the classes he has taken through the years Owens mentioned lifetime sports as his favorite "because we play sports every day.” However, Owens stated, that his least favorite class is English because he finds it boring.
Reflecting on his years in high school, Owens wishes he would have studied a bit more to achieve higher grades. He also regrets not playing football.
Owens believes that the underclassman should be striving to be their best and never settle for barely passing, saying, “Do whatever it takes to achieve greatness; don’t settle for average.”
