Eric McGuire Takes Top Honors in George Rodrigue Art Contest


We have an update to the story below about Eric McGuire, the Airline High School senior who was selected among the top 15 finalists in the George Rodrigue Art Scholarship Contest.

Over the weekend, at an awards ceremony in New Orleans, McGuire won 5th place -- out of 600+ entries altogether -- earning him a $4,000 scholarship to Louisiana Tech.

Congratulations, Eric. Way to go!


 

AHS Student Makes Finals In George Rodrigue Art Contest

 

 

Airline High School senior Eric McGuire may have trouble coming down from cloud nine, where he has undoubtedly been since receiving news he is one of 15 finalists in the George Rodrigue 2015 Scholarship Art Contest. More than 600 entries were submitted from across the state.

The theme for this year’s art contest is Louisiana’s Music. High school juniors and seniors were challenged to share their interpretation of Louisiana’s rich musical legacy by creating a work of art that synthesizes the best traits of the state’s music. McGuire’s piece depicts a jazz musician, painted in Mardi Gras colors.

The finalists will share $45,000 in college scholarships and one will be featured as a poster to be sold at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation’s many festivals, including the Crescent City Blues and BBQ Festival, the Louisiana Cajun Zydeco Festival, Congo Square Rhythms Festival and Fiesta Latina.

Winners will be announced at the 2015 Awards Luncheon being held April 18 in New Orleans.

Congratulations to Eric McGuire for making it into the top 15. What a huge accomplishment! And best of luck winning first prize.
