Three DSHS Students Earn All-State Recognition at VASE Competition

April 28, 2021


Three Dripping Springs High School students were awarded all-state honors at the virtual Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) state competition.


Katherine Ferno and her piece “Hello My Darling,” Grace Maddux and her entry “Drowning,” and Melissa Richardson's “Radical Radiance” all received recognition after presenting their work in front of a judges’ panel.


Richardson made her third straight state appearance, while Ferno appeared at her second consecutive state competition.


Each year student pieces from DSHS are entered in the VASE area/regional competition, where they can receive different levels of recognition. The event is sponsored by the Texas Art Education Association. Ferno, Maddux and Richardson qualified for the state event after receiving a Superior rating at the regional competition and earning all-area honors in February.
