2013 Art Contest Winners

Congratulations to all the junior and senior winners!

On March 23, 2013, GRFA awarded over $45,000 in college scholarships and art supplies to ten high school seniors and five juniors at an awards luncheon at the Sheraton Hotel New Orleans.

High school juniors and seniors were asked to create a unique piece of work based on our theme "Louisiana's Culinary Heritage" in partnership with the Louisiana Restaurant Association's Education Foundation (LRAEF) .

Winning entries will be used in a new Louisiana Cookbook.  The Fall 2013 cookbook will showcase 100 recipes from Louisiana's greatest chefs, with proceeds benefiting GRFA and LRAEF programs.

These 15 finalists were chosen from over 600 entries and over 120 cities from across Louisiana!  Thank you to everyone that entered! (click photos to enlarge)

Student Success
"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."
