Ninth grader Caroline Moore won the Art Forms Logo Contest.
Art Forms is a MBJH tradition open to all students to express themselves and compete for awards. Sponsored by the MBJH PTO, it gives MBJH students a venue in which to share and polish their artistic talents in three major categories: Literary, Visual and Performing Arts.
The three major categories are judged by local professionals in those areas. There is also a student choice award in each category that is voted on by the students. The Visual and Literary entries are judged without the students’ names on them and only judges who are unfamiliar with MBJH students are used in the Performing Arts category.
A logo competition was held in December to kick off the contest, with the winning design determined by popular vote by MBJH students. Caroline Moore in ninth grade designed the winning logo that will appear on the Art Forms T-shirt and on the Showcase program.
Several local businesses have sponsored the event including Seale Harris Clinic, orthodontist group Phillips and Todd, A’Mano, Books-a-Million, Sally Bergquist and Stephen Greene, attorney-at-law.
Winners will be announced and awards given during an in-school assembly on Friday, Feb. 17.
The Art Forms committee, led by Chairman Lee Perry, is very excited that the winners in the Performing Arts category will take the stage in the Art Forms Showcase, which will be held at Mountain Brook High School this year on Friday, Feb. 24. The Showcase will include displays and recognition of winning entries from the Visual and Literary categories, as well as performances by the Performing Arts winners.
