More than 150 high school students from throughout Fresno County entered chalk drawings Tuesday into a competition at The Big Fresno Fair.
The 32 entries depicted their interpretations of the competition’s theme, “Homegrown Happiness.”
The participants represented eight high schools, fair spokeswoman Danielle Griffin said.
The drawings can be bid on in a silent auction, Griffin said. Proceeds from the auction will go to the arts programs at the schools, she said.
The winners were:
▪ First: Mendota High – Flor Torres, Gemma Patricio and Karla Salazar
▪ Second: Washington Union – Shay Envernizzi and Heidy Rodriguez
▪ Third: Roosevelt High – Eve Padron
The contest has been held for more than 12 years, Griffin said.
