The Fordsville Historical Society is pleased to announce our continued partnership with Fordsville Elementary School and the Rex Denton Jr. Artistic Achievement Awards Program. The Mission and objective of this program is twofold: (1) To celebrate the memory and art of the late Rex Denton Jr. by encouraging the artistic development of the students of Fordsville Elementary. (2) To recognize the outstanding artistic achievements of Fordsville students with grade specific awards for their participation in the Annual Rex Denton Pencil Portrait Awards program.
This year’s award winners will be recognized at the awards ceremony. 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place winners for each grade level will receive a cash award and certificate. A Best Overall Artist will also be recognized during the ceremony as well as a 2nd Grade Special Pick and a Chairman Award. All portraits submitted will be featured on the Rex Denton Jr. website (see link below). Each student participant will also receive a Certificate of Achievement.
Please join us in celebrating Fordsville Elementary School’s talented artists on Thursday, October 5th, 2017 (time to be confirmed). Full details on The Rex Denton Artistic Achievement Awards Program can be found on the Rex Denton Jr. website (see the link below). Find us on FACEBOOK too.
