El Monte High Student Wins Women’s Club District Art Contest

By Anne Donofrio-Holter

Congratulations to El Monte High School art student Julie Hang whose acrylic painting of George Washington took first place in the Women’s Club district level annual music and arts competition for high school students.  Placing second were Arroyo High School students Brittnany Nguyen for her pencil drawing and Brandon Hernandez for an acrylic painting with an honorable mention to Yesenia Ramirez for her pencil drawing.

“Each year, our panel of judges select the best pieces of artwork from an array of outstanding entries,”  said one of the judges.

“It is wonderful to see so many great entries from our local schools,” said another of the judges.  “The community should be very proud of its many talented students.”

Hang’s painting will go on to the state competition which will be held in May.

“Congratulations to our students and teachers for their participation and to all the judges for their hard work,” said Superintendent Nick Salerno.  “We are very proud of the many talented students we have in our district and wish Ms. Hang well in the next level of competition.”
