Student's cow art leads to cashed checks
Friendswood High School (FHS) art student Jack Corpening was recently awarded $5,000 for his entry in the sixth annual Lucerne Art of Dairy Art contest.
Corpening, the competition’s first Grand Prize winner from Texas, decorated a life-sized cow for the contest with a little guidance of his art teacher, Mary Giles, who also received a $5,000 award.
Two contest representatives, along with FHS Principal Mark Griffon, Superintendent Trish Hanks, Mayor Dave Smith, Corpening’s parents, teachers and students recognized Corpening’s efforts with a surprise award ceremony in the school’s cafeteria during lunch.
Lucerne Art of Dairy, a national contest, allows students in grades nine through 12 to submit designs that interpret how they share joy through the arts using an outline of a cow as the canvas, according to the press release. Some of those designs are then chosen to advance to the next stage, applying the art to a life-size cow.
Corpening’s winning cow will be permanently displayed at the Randalls store in Pearland.
