Congratulations to the winning students! Over 650 high school students from across Louisiana entered the 2016 Scholarship Art Contest by submitting original works of art for the theme of "Louisiana Celebrates Carnival." GRFA awarded $45,250 in college scholarships to ten (10) seniors and six (6) juniors!
"The GRFA has immensely impacted my art along with my life. People seem to react and appreciate my submission for the foundation. I have offers of people wanting prints of my artwork and, not to sound cheesy and cliche, but opportunity just keeps on knocking. I'm really really appreciative that my art teacher introduced this contest to me and that I decided to be bold by creating something beautiful for this foundation, and to be honored for my creativity! I can't thank to GRFA office and George and Wendy Rodrigue enough for this amazing opportunity that I will always remember and carry proudly with me throughout my creative career."
