Recently, Wylie held the annual Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) and had three students advance to state level. Audrey Orson, Sierra Ledford, and Alexis Johnston will have their works displayed on April 28 at San Marcos for a chance to win up to $1000 in scholarships. Wylie students also got a combined total of thirty-eight individual metals at the contest.

VASE is a competition that aims to recognize student artwork rather than the traditional sporting and education based competitions. Students can enter art they’ve made during the year and earn a rating of one to four (up to five at state level). Judges will look for authenticity, technical expertise, and understanding of the TEKS for visual arts. The students also get a chance to explain the meaning behind their piece. There are also four different levels based on the experience level of the participant. Those who advance to state have a chance to win the Gold Seal medallion which is the highest honor the contestants can win.

Wylie has done well in past VASE competitions, so the expectations are high for our students this year. Wylie sends their best wishes to the students advancing this year.
