2023 Education Law Conference Art Contest
About the Art Contest
Five talented high school students woke up to some exciting news this week, as Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo (AALRR) announced the winners of its fifth annual High School Art Contest! Held in conjunction with the firm’s Education Law Conference, the contest invited 11th and 12th grade students from public schools all across California to submit a piece of original artwork that creatively captured the theme of this year’s conference: New Mindsets for How We Lead.
The art submitted by the students joyfully captured what New Mindsets for How We Lead means to them. While the works themselves varied, the themes students chose to depict—from collaboration and teamwork to acting as leaders in their classrooms and demonstrating excitement to learn—were unanimously inspiring.
As a leader in education law, AALRR believes in giving back to the districts and students its attorneys serve daily—and its annual art contest is one way of doing so. The five award winners will each receive a $500 check, and their schools will receive $250 to go toward the purchase of art supplies. There was a strong turnout for Southern California school districts; the winners for this year’s contest came from Temple City Unified School District, Upland Unified School District, and El Monte Unified High School District.
