A total of 27 Round Rock ISD pieces of artwork from 21 students have been selected to advance to the state Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE) in April.

The students’ work was among 118 pieces selected to advance to the state level after competing at the Region 13 VASE, held at Cedar Ridge High School Feb. 4. Staffed by Round Rock ISD Visual Arts faculty and community members, the event hosted 1,502 student works with more than 1,000 students and sponsors in attendance.

Advancing students represent Cedar Ridge, McNeil, Round Rock and Westwood high schools.

“We are incredibly proud of these 21 outstanding artists who have advanced to state,” Fine Arts Director Lisa Roebuck said. “It takes a great deal of hard work and dedication to achieve this level of success and we look forward to seeing these artists represent Round Rock ISD at the state level.”
