Coronavirus canceled the Cottonwood Art Festival, but you can still go online to view the amazing work of Richardson ISD students and vote for them to be recognized as Emerging Artists this year. A panel of credited judges will determine the recipients of placement awards and scholarships, awarded thanks to the generosity of Neighborhood Credit Union. The People’s Choice Award, though, goes to one student who receives the most votes from festival fans and supporters.
Two talented Lake Highlands High students, Lilly Martin and Hannah Robertson, are in the running, along with Pearce’s Stephanie Jones, Priscilla Hunt-Lambert, Denise Ramos and Camille McCleary and Richardson High’s Zach Spraggins, Stephanie Huerta, Hannah Thompson, Hannah Byers and Emma Brantley.
You may vote one time here until 5 p.m. April 17. The fall Cottonwood Art Festival will be held the first weekend in October.
