Inspired by photography? Have a secret pickle recipe? Good with a sewing machine? Pine Tree students answered the call with help from their HS Art teacher, Amy Brown.  Students submitted original creations in one of the numerous State Fair of Texas creative arts competitions this fall.

Congratulations to Rachel Bartlett and Hunter Brevard of Pine Tree High School. Both students received Honorable Mentions in the Glue-A-Shoe contest at the State Fair in Dallas. Their sculptures will be on display through the run of the fair. Categories in the contest included: Boots, High Heeled Shoes, Sandals, Tennis Shoes, and Flip Flops or Loafers.

The State Fair offers more than 1100 categories in 12 departments to be entered and judged before the fair begins. Departments include: art, ceramics, dolls, food, hobby collections, needlework, and scale modeling. Entries for these departments were dropped off at the creative arts building in August.

During the fair, 24 contests judge the skill and creativity of Texans who think they have what it takes to bring the blue ribbon home. From the "glue-a-shoe" contest, in which entrants decorate an old heel or running shoe with ornate objects, to the "guess what's cook'n" contest sponsored by Central Market, where amateur chefs are provided with a mystery bag full of ingredients to create any culinary dish possible, each day brings an exciting competition fairgoers will surely enjoy.
