The George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts (GRFA) has announced the top 21 finalists for their 5th Annual Art Contest.
In partnership with the Audubon Nature Institute, GRFA selected the top art submissions from Louisiana high school juniors and seniors who will share $50,000 in college scholarship. The 21 finalists, listed below, were selected by the first round of judges from over 700 entries from across the state, making this year's contest the biggest yet. The top senior winner, selected by a panel of celebrity judges, will have the opportunity to design a poster to be sold at all Audubon Nature Institute properties.
Scholarships and awards will be presented by celebrity judges at the 5 th Annual Arts Contest Awards Luncheon presented by Chevron on Saturday, March 22 at the Audubon Tea Room.
