Honorable mentions went to students Isabella Deocariza, Jessica Robert, and Levi Smith.
All the contest entries will be exhibited in the Houston Harte University Center Gallery, 1910 Rosemont Drive, from Jan. 1-29. An awards ceremony honoring the winners and all student participants will be held Thursday, Jan. 20, from 4-5 p.m. in the gallery. The exhibition and awards ceremony are open free to the public.
Entries were judged on creativity, originality, depth of thought, technical competency and relation to the theme of the 2010 E.
