Artwork by winners of the Thea Foundation's 2012 Visual Arts Competition for junior and senior high school students goes on display today at the Thea Center, 401 Main St., NLR.

Ten seniors won college scholarships ranging between $4,000 for first place to $2,000 for 10th. First place winner was Tulsi Patel (Morrilton High), whose work is shown above. Other scholarship winners were Valeria Chavez (El Dorado High), Michaela Osborne (Bentonville High), Derek Schultz (North Little Rock High), Austin Benson (Morrilton High), Katie Connelly (El Dorado High), Cole Harken (Morrilton High), Darren Waddles (Mountain View High), Haley Martin (Lake Hamilton High) and Eun Ha (Little Rock Central High). Three winners from Morrilton — something good happening in that art department there, looks like. There were also seven seniors who won honorable mentions.

First place for juniors, who compete for $100 prizes, went to Emmanuelle Esters of North Little Rock High. Sergio Garcia and Rebecca Richmond, also of NLR High, Jamie Freeman of Cabot, Chris Graham of Benton, Holly Roomsburg of El Dorado, MacKenzie Thompson of Little Rock, Angela Eichhorn of Searcy, and Morgan Thompson and Rebekah Cooley of Paris also won $100. There were five honorable mention winners.

The theme for the work is “Happy Remembrances of the Holiday Season,” taken from the late Thea Kay Leopoulos’ journal entry “Christmas.”

A total of $25,000 in scholarship money was awarded to for seniors and $1,000 in cash prizes to juniors.
