GSL art students recognized at State Capitol Rotunda for Youth Art Month

Glencoe-Silver Lake art students, from Lakeside Elementary to the high school, recently exhibited their work at the Minnesota State Capitol on Saturday, March 9. Students and GSL art teachers Shanda Landes and Andrea Wigern submitted pieces for three categories: a flag contest, general art submission and future art educator spotlight award.
Via Art Educators of Minnesota (AEM) and for Youth Art Month during March, students’ artwork faced a competitive judgment process, and, as Landes put it, “We kind of dominated this year.” GSL took a majority of the competitive placements — a feat that doesn’t happen every year.
From Lakeside Elementary, in the flag design contest, Natalie Ackerson placed first, Abby Schauer placed second and Abby Kaczmarek received honorable mention. Ackerson, for being the winning flag design, had her flag design materialized into a real flag — a special honor for all first place flag design winners at each level — and her design will be turned into a poster.
For the flag contest at the GSL middle school level, Teagan Aldrich placed first, Megan Becker placed second, Marisol Ignacio placed third and Mitchell Penaz received honorable mention. Aldrich’s piece will be turned into a postcard, and in the high school, Abby Maunu took second place for her flag design.
