MOUNTAIN VIEW – The Mountain View High School art department proudly came away from the 2013 Wyoming High School Art Symposium with a variety of sought after awards.

This year’s show was host to 62 schools and over 4,200 pieces of outstanding student artwork. Mountain View was awarded with four of the pieces in the top 25 pieces of the show selected as the “Artistic Discovery Winners.”

The winning pieces of artwork were by Katie Armstrong, Kayla Burch, Isaac Kampman and Jessie Schuttimieier. The artwork will be on display in Cheyenne at the State Museum for the summer. This is the second year in a row that Mountain View High School has had four of the top 25 pieces of the state art show.

Wyoming’s First Lady Carol Mead also made a very limited selection of student work to hang in the Governor’s Mansion for the next year. Mountain View’s Braidie Biggs’ colored pencil drawing was among this year’s selections. This is also the second year in a row that Mountain View has been honored to have a piece chosen by the First Lady.

The National Wildlife Museum in Jackson sponsored a Traveling Trout composition to celebrate their 25th anniversary. The 36 participating Wyoming high schools were provided a fiberglass trout form to creatively decorate and bring back to be judged at the Wyoming High School Art Symposium. Sadie Dutra, Cassie Warren, Tricia Jensen and Braidie Briggs worked tirelessly all year on the trout and were awarded with an Honorable Mention and a $500 cash award for the MVHS art department.

MVHS’s entry “Riffle Runner,” was one of eight entries from Wyoming high school art programs to receive cash prizes in the “Traveling Trout” statewide art competition offered by the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole.

The contest challenged the 37 participating Wyoming schools to turn a plain white fiberglass trout into distinctive work of art,

Mountain View was also awarded a total of 47 ribbons at the state symposium.
