UPDATE: Kansans...As Talented As You Think! High School Art Competition

During the first week of December 2013, the Topeka West photography program received great news about the Kansans...As Talented As You Think! high school art competition. Senior Brent Lambert and junior Molly Taggart had both placed as finalists in the Black & White photography category.

This past Friday I was checking my school email during a break of that day's professional development activities and I was astounded by two messages that I received.  The final judging of the competition had taken place and Molly was awarded the winner of the Black & White photography category!  Then the next email announced that Brent had won Best of Show!!  What this means is that Molly will receive a $100 scholarship for winning her category and Brent will receive a $300 scholarship for winning over all the other finalists!!

Congratulations Molly and Brent!  And a huge thank you to the Kansas Native Sons and Daughters for hosting the award ceremony and to Grant Glenn and Don Lambert for helping to provide this special opportunity for our Kansas high school artists!

Brent Lambert, senior                 "Crown Graphic" - Best of Show

Molly Taggart, junior                           "Curves" - Winner, Black & White photography category


UPDATE:  On the evening of January 24th Brent and Molly were invited to attend a banquet at the Topeka Expocenter held by the Kansas Native Sons & Daughters celebrating Kansas Day.  Brent's and Molly's photographs were on display for all to enjoy and they also received their awards for Best of Show and 1st Place respectively!
