North Schuylkill Halloween Window Painting Contest Begins

On Tuesday, students from North Schuylkill High School began working on their entry into the 57th Annual North Schuylkill Halloween Window Painting Contest.

Students in grades 7 through 12, went out to Ashland, Frackville, Ringtown, Butler Township, and Girardville to decorate business windows.  This year’s theme for the windows was “Under the Sea”.

Students first submit a drawing on paper of their ideas, and the top selections as determined by the Art Department at North Schuylkill. Students are then assigned a window where they convert their drawing to a painting.

Each year, retired North Schuylkill Art teachers travel from town to town, judging each of the paintings. Prizes are awarded for: Grand Prize, 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, and Honorable Mention.

According to contest coordinator, Art Teacher Kerri Herring said the contest includes 42 entries this year.
