Toward the end of the 2001/2002 school year the South Tahoe High Performing Arts Booster Association sponsored an art poster contest. The contest was organized by association member Pamela Gadomski and was open to all students at South Tahoe High School and South Tahoe Middle School. The goal of the contest was to encourage students to design a poster depicting the performing arts that could be used by the association this year for a schedule of events, thereby combining visual art with the performing arts.

More then 200 students entered their artwork for this contest. The talent displayed by our local students was inspiring and worthy of recognition. Many of the students were encouraged by Carol Haase, STMS art instructor, who helped them prepare their artwork. Her enthusiasm for this project was reflected in the number of entries received. The association thanks her for her assistance and enthusiasm.

A committee of local artists reviewed the entries and ultimately selected a winner. Katie Lee, a freshman at South Tahoe High School, created the winning poster and was awarded a $100 cash prize. Sadie Duin, also a STHS freshman, and Alison Kern, an eighth-grader at South Tahoe Middle School were awarded honorable mention for their entries and were each presented a $25 gift certificate to Sierra Bookshop.

The winning artwork is now being developed into the background for the STHS Performing Arts Schedule of Events and will soon be on display at businesses around town. Tim Weaver of the Digital Penguin Design and Display in Meyers has generously donated his time in assisting the association with developing the poster. Not only will the poster be visible around the community, but copies also will be available for purchase at a cost of $10 each, with profits being used to help support the performing arts programs at STHS.

For more information on purchasing a poster or the Performing Arts Booster Association call Pamela Gadomski at (530) 577-4540 or Rosemary Manning at Tahoe Health Touch, (530) 541-6565.
