Hays High took first and second place at the art day sidewalk design contest at Fort Hays State University on Wednesday, April 17.

26 students from Hays High attended the art day festivities.

Schools around southwest Kansas attend the art day activities. Each school has a different booth with their art set up. Students are allowed to walk around and look at other school’s art. Students can also go to see the student honors exhibition in Moss-Thorns Gallery with Fort Hays State’s student’s artwork.

Art instructor Jennifer Younger explained how as their group went to participate in activities held at the Art Department, judges walked through and (looked) at the artwork of all the attending schools.

“We did pretty well with awards,” Younger said. “We did pretty well overall.”

Younger said that for the sidewalk chalk competition, this was the first year they made it mandatory for all students attending the art day festivities to participate in it.

For the sidewalk competition, their is a different theme every year. This year, the theme of the competition was to draw an album cover or movie poster with a squirrel. Since Hays High won first and second place, they received t-shirts and they also received a traveling trophy.

“We were super excited when we found out we won first and second place,” Younger said. “Now it’s our goal to take first every year.”
