Two Neligh-Oakdale High School students received prestigious awards at the ESU #8 art show this week.
Beatrice Spiger, a junior at Neligh-Oakdale, was awarded "Best of Show" for her acrylic piece, titled "Joana."
Senior Evie Jones was recognized with an "Outstanding Merit" ribbon for her collage 2-D relief/assemblage work.
Both students are taught by Mary Pfanstiel.
The annual art show is being held in the new 4-H exhibition building at the Antelope County Fairgrounds in Neligh. The public is invited to view the display until 8 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday.
Approximately 650 pieces of artwork are on display from 13 area schools, including all of the Antelope County schools.
The show was judged by Deb Fonder, a retired art teacher from Norfolk and Mike Hassler, a Wakefield art instructor.
