Pasadena Student Artists Win Bob Hope Airport Tower Banner Art Contest

 Art 

Three Pasadena high school art students have been selected as winners for the 2013 Bob Hope Airport Tower Banner Student Art Contest. The winners were chosen from 186 entries across all public school districts in Pasadena, Glendale and Burbank. The First Place winners from each city will have their winning artwork reproduced in a large, 16-by-26-foot size and hung from the outside of the airport tower.

Pasadena High School Senior Sadie Goff was selected for First Place from Pasadena; followed by Emma Yervandyan, 11th grade, Pasadena High School for Second Place and Third Place to Hannah Smith, 10th grade, also from Pasadena High School. Goff’s artwork will be the first to be displayed among the 2013 winners, beginning in September.

This is the sixth year the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority has invited high school students in Grades 9-12 to enter the Bob Hope Airport Tower Banner Student Art Contest. Each school district determined its top three entries and the arts and culture commissions from each respective city then made the final selection.

For about three months, each First Place artwork from each school district is displayed on the Bob Hope Airport terminal tower where it will be seen by more than 1 million travelers. The winning entries displayed on the tower are rotated among Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena.

Second and third place winners, along with the first place winners, will be displayed in Terminal B with background information about the next contest beginning September 2013.

All of the winning artwork from each school district can be seen at: www.bobhopeairport.com/airportauthority/art-contest-winners/art-contest-winners-2013.html 

To be eligible, student artists must be enrolled in Grades 9-12 in the public high schools of Burbank Unified School District, Glendale Unified School District or Pasadena Unified School District. Students interested in participating should contact the art faculty or art department at their high school for details.
