Presbyterian School student wins photography award
Eighth-grade Presbyterian School student Gracey Wallace received regional recognition in the 2012 Scholastic Art & Writing Contest.
Wallace competed in the Photography Art category and won two Gold Key awards, one Silver Key award and four Honorable Mentions.
Since receiving an SLR digital camera as a gift from her father a few years ago, Wallace has practiced her photography. The photographs submitted by Wallace included shots taken from a trip to Singapore and China.
The regional competition included entries from local students in grades seven through 12. Each year more than 250,000 students take part in Scholastic Art & Writing programs. Student artists and writers compete for the chance to earn scholarships and to have their works exhibited or published.
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are sponsored by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers nonprofit organization. The group focuses on identifying teens with exceptional talent and promoting their work to a national audience. Past winners include Richard Avedon, Truman Capote, Joyce Carol Oates, Sylvia Plath, Robert Redford and Andy Warhol.
The Presbyterian School of Houston's main campus is located at 5300 Main St. For more information, visit pshouston.org or call 713-620-6365.
