Middle School Students Medal at Junior VASE

Jun 16, 2021

All 17 middle schools participated at the Junior Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) organized by the Texas Art Education Association where more than 200 Frisco ISD students earned Gold Medals.

Each year, thousands of middle school students from across the state submit original artwork for evaluation at the regional level. Junior VASE provides middle school art students with an educational TEKS-based evaluation of their artwork while recognizing exemplary student achievement.

Through Junior VASE, students were provided constructive feedback on their artwork. When scoring artwork, jurors looked for originality of concept, technical expertise and understanding of the TEKS.

While the competition this year was virtual, the intense competition and sheer brilliance of the artistry remained.

Gold medals were awarded to students receiving a rating of four in their division, the highest rating. Then, these students were judged in the Platinum Event, with only 10% of these students receiving a Platinum Medal.

This year, Frisco ISD students earned 245 Gold Medals. From those 245, 29 were selected as Platinum Medal winners representing the top 10% of regional entries.

Congratulations to all students and teachers who participated in Junior VASE, especially those listed below who were rated with a score of four and received a Platinum Medal, the highest honor.
