HCS students selected as 2021 mayor’s holiday card winners
Each year the mayor’s office of the city of Hampton sponsors a holiday card contest for art students attending the four Hampton high schools. This program began over 14 years ago with Mayor Ross Kearney II and each subsequent mayor has continued it. The mayor selects a theme and the high school students interpret that theme using any two-dimensional media that can be reproduced onto a card. A minimum of one piece from each high school is selected for the cards. The cards are sent to area business leaders and other officials to extend the mayor’s and city council’s holiday wishes. This program is a wonderful way to showcase Hampton art students and their great teachers.
This year the theme was the student's choice to illustrate a local landmark to showcase the city of Hampton during the holidays.
Congratulations to the following student winners and their art teachers:
