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.

The Photography classes competed in the Association of Texas Photography Instructors, Rising Star Portfolio contest.
