The Texas Renaissance Festival recently announced the winners of the 11th annual School Days contests.
Thousands of students from local schools and homeschool programs competed in a variety of contests including art, journalism, music, theatre, costume, trebuchet and writing. Competitions were judged by educators and music, theatre, art and journalism professionals from the Houston area.
Sealy High School and Austin Waldorf High School were the winners of the Trebuchet Contest.
“This year we were especially impressed with the amount of enthusiasm each student put into their craft,” Kim Bryant, School Days coordinator for the Texas Renaissance Festival, said. “Whether it was writing a poem, taking a photo, putting together a costume or rehearsing a monologue or musical piece, it was obvious these kids worked hard and it’s that kind of effort that makes the School Days program such an exciting and important part of the Texas Renaissance Festival.”
The Texas Renaissance Festival broke records this year when 63,022 students, grades K-12, from more than 75 school districts in the Houston, Tomball, Magnolia areas and other states passed through Festival gates on Tuesday, Nov. 3 and Wednesday, Nov. 4 for the Festival’s 11th annual School Days.
