Photo Students Capture Top Honors
At the State Visual Arts Scholastic Event, Madison Ringo received another award for her image "Technology". She received a ranking of a 4, which is the highest ranking an image/artwork can receive.
The Photography classes competed in the Association of Texas Photography Instructors, TOP PROGRAM contest. Each school is allowed to turn in 3 portfolios, each consisting of 10 images that represent a given category. Portfolios must have images from a variety of students in a school's photography program. The Weatherford HS Main Campus competes against schools across the state of Texas that are 9-12 and career magnet schools. This year, our Portrait portfolio AND our Still-Life portfolio placed FIRST!
We are still awaiting our State Ranking for Top Program.

At the State Visual Arts Scholastic Event, Aidan Ridling received another award for his image "Stairway to Heaven". He received a ranking of a 4, which is the highest ranking an image/artwork can receive.
The Photography classes competed in the Association of Texas Photography Instructors, Rising Star Portfolio contest. Each school is allowed to turn in 3 portfolios, each consisting of 10 images that represent a given category. Portfolios must have images from a variety of students in a school's photography program. The Weatherford HS Ninth Grade Campus competes against schools across the state of Texas that are 9-12 and career magnet schools. This year, our architecture portfolio placed FIRST, our thematic portfolio placed SECOND and our portrait portfolio placed SECOND!
This gave us an overall ranking of SECOND in the state in the Rising Star Portfolio contest.
This is the BEST ranking our school has EVER received in this competition, and the BEST a 9th grade campus has ever received in the competition.
Here is a slide show of their awesome photos for the portfolios.
One of our NGC photographers, Chloe Clark, now has the honor of her photograph on the ATPI website as a background image on their homepage. This is AMAZING! Please go see it! http://www.atpi.org It is a black and white image of a bridge from Fort Worth.
