On October 29, 2009, we held an awards ceremony at Tomas Rivera Elementary for the three winners of the Bikes-To-Kids contest. The winning art entries are really, really, really good, and I’m not just saying that because the art is bike themed. These kids are truly talented, and the judges were blown away by the creativity and detail in the winning works. The students worked on these art projects for the month of October, and simultaneously, Querencia volunteers repaired about seven bicycles from which the winners chose. Denton Police donated new helmets, Sonic donated coupons, and the Hydrant Cafe donated coupons.
Here are the winning entries which will be on display at Emily Fowler Library through November:
You can see all of the photos at the qcbs.org Flickr account, and be sure to zoom in and appreciate the detail of these works. The 2nd place entry even has the “Brooks” logo on the leather saddle! The other entries in the top 10 were also super good and worth looking at, so feel free to look at all the entries.
