Raytown South High School Students Earn Top Honors in Local Art Contest

Raytown South students placed first and third in the Crazy Car Art Contest sponsored by Sci-Tech Automotive. Raytown South junior Jerman Hunt placed first and Raytown South sophomore Elena Martin placed third in the contest. Hunt’s artwork was selected for first place out of more than 45 pieces or art.

As part of the contest, both students used their imagination to create a drawing featuring a car and used color to bring their art to life.

Sci-Tech Automotive awarded Hunt with $250 and Martin with $50. Hunt will also have her name placed on a trophy on display at Sci-Tech and her artwork will be featured on the billboard located at Raytown Road and 350 HWY by Sci-Tech Automotive.

Raytown South students have won the contest more than any other school in the Kansas City metro since the beginning of the contest in 2007.

Hunt and Martin are both in Tammy Steele's Drawing and Painting II class.
