Battle Ground High School junior Dixie Anderson is a state winner in the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction’s (OSPI) 44th Annual Superintendent’s High School Art Show. This is a huge accomplishment for Dixie, her teacher Tamra Galles, BGHS, and the entire Battle Ground Public Schools district!
Students first compete at the Regional ESD show, where the top judged artworks move on to the state competition. This year, there were 134 entries that reached the state level. After several rounds of judging and selections, fifteen winners and ten honorable mention awardees were identified.
The fifteen winning pieces will be added to the permanent collection at OSPI or at one of their participating partner state organization offices, including the State Board of Education (SBE), Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB), Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA), Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA), and the Association of Washington School Principals (AWSP).
There will be a reception and awards ceremony to honor the winning students from 1-3 p.m. on Friday, May 19 at the OSPI offices in the Old Capitol Building at 600 Washington Street SE in Olympia. The Superintendent of Public Instruction, Chris Reykdal, along with other distinguished guests, will present the awards.
