Seven students from Pattonville High School submitted artwork to the 100 Neediest Cases art contest sponsored by the United Way and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Art by sophomore Macy Bunton and senior Caleb Simpkins was selected to be among the top 40 entries and will appear in the print and/or online editions beginning Nov. 21.
Additionally, the following students submitted work and will be on display at the Missouri History Museum from Dec. 6 to Jan. 3: Jada Brown, Aileen Cortez Gomez, Payton Crump-McHugh, Jessica Hurtado and Michael Montoya Jr.
The Neediest Cases campaign has helped thousands of disadvantaged families during the holidays, with the Post-Dispatch highlighting 100 to raise awareness and encourage donations for thousands of needy families.
The art students are part of Beth Kathriner’s Drawing 2 class.
