This Wednesday, 5 Blue Hill Seniors traveled to Hastings and competed in the first annual Jackson Dinsdale Mural Contest. They may not have won, but the competition was extremely fun.
This year’s theme was ‘Tattoos of the Past and Present.’ Schools from all over the area came to compete. Schools were given the topic and 2 and a half hours to interpret the concept. Paintings ranged from samurai to classic pin-up girls to abstract birds. The top three paintings were awarded hand-blown glass sculptures.
While registering, students were even allowed to send in a portfolio for Hastings College professors to judge. The best of these students were awards a variety of scholarships to Hastings College. The top three were Sandy Creek with third, York received second, and Kearney High won first place.
