Congratulations to NBHS visual art students who received accolades from the Texas Arts Educators Association (TAEA) VASE competition. Students submitted artwork to the competition earlier in March. Alekxis Rodriguez, a senior, will be moving on to State in April!

The VASE competition, also known as the Visual Arts Scholastic Event,  recognizes exemplary student achievement in the Visual Arts by providing high school art students and programs a standard of excellence in which to achieve.

Academically eligible high school students in grades 9-12 from throughout Texas can participate in VASE, entered by teachers who are members in good standing with TAEA. Teachers/sponsors register and set up a teacher page that provides important dates, payment information, event documents, and feedback opportunities. District Arts Administrators can also set up an Admin page. Each student can submit a maximum of two art entries.

Twenty-nine regional events are scheduled based on the 20 TEA Education Service Center regions, and zones created in larger regions. Each regional meet has a Regional Director responsible for the planning and running of the event.
