2024 Student Art Show and Awards

Artwork of Belted kingfisher by Eliana B., 3rd grade.

“Amazing, amusing and creative” were just some of the comments overhead at this year’s Student Art Show held at Creighton University’s Harper Center on April 20th.

640+ students entered their artwork in the contest in four categories: Realism, Graphic Design, Cartooning and Recycled. Due to the numerous entries, judges had a difficult time selecting the winners of excellence and merit awards from so many creative works of art. 

During the awards ceremony, held in the auditorium, winners of excellence and merit awards recieved ribbons and prizes, consisting of art supplies and books about birds. It was great to see all of the art AND all of the students who attended.

Shown here are the winners of Best of Show – a small representation of the entries. Best of Show winners received $20 gift cards donated by Blick Art Materials. Thanks, Blick!

BIG thanks to all who volunteered during the different phases of organizing and putting on this event: Sue Brusnahan, Andrew Callison, Charlie Callison, Olivia DeWitt, Mark  Harberg, Wayne Fithian, Lindsay Hueftle, Suzie Kingery, Elle Laddusaw, Sarah Laddusaw, Anne Maguire, Lin McGloins, Bailey Placzek, Christine Prescott and Jaye Welch. And special thanks to the Art Show Committee: Steve Geddes, Julia Rawnsley, Jackie Scholar and co-chair Katy Simmons.

Most of all, thanks to the students, teachers and parents who made the art happen. We LOVE seeing your artwork and hope to see more in 2025.
