Southside High School students take top honors for artwork


Southside ISD students are on a roll and taking top honors. Earlier this month, three Southside High School advanced placement studio art students competed in the Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) contest, the art version of UIL. Seniors Mayra Holguin and Egypt Salahud-din and Sophomore Sandy Rojo (pictured above with their artwork) were entered into the advanced category and all received a Gold Medal rating of 4, the highest score allowable.

The student’s artwork goes through an extensive judging process which includes an interview in which the student must explain and defend their artistic choices.

“Our art students did extremely well under pressure and were able to voice for themselves their creative process,” said Southside High School advanced placement art teacher Christina Robinson.
