A small group of Little Elm High School students made the trip to San Antonio to participate in the state VASE (Visual Arts Scholastic Event) where they all received medals.

"I am extremely proud of our students," said Melissa Connour, LEHS Art teacher. "A gold seal and a $500 Scholarship was given to Dylan Weand, a first for Little Elm High School.  Also, Jessica Solis and Maliah Medina received the highest grade of "4" and medaled for their pieces." 

The mission of the High School VASE is to recognize exemplary student achievement in the Visual Arts by providing high school art students and programs a standard of excellence in which to achieve.

Texas High School VASE began its 25th season in January of 2019. The first VASE event was held in 1994 with just over 400 student entries; in 2018, over 35,000 artworks were entered in VASE. Students create artworks, write about their creative processes and understanding of visual art, and articulate information about their artwork during an interview with a VASE juror, who evaluates their work using a standards-based rubric.

VASE receives 35,000 works from each region, but only 10 percent move on to the state level. From there students are then evaluated at the state level and are graded again. Those who receive a 4 is the highest grading that you can receive and student get a medal for that grade. To receive a Gold seal it means that your are exemplary artist and accomplished on a very high standard. Approximately 150 artworks are selected for the GOLD Seal, which means they are in the top .4% of the 35,000 entries from across the state.
