2021 Creative Arts Contest Results are in!

The beautiful weather plus the cooler temperatures added to the success of the 2021 Fall Festival Creative Arts Contest, which took place in the Sulphur Springs High School Conference Center. In the children’s division (ages 10 and under), there were 20 entries.  Youth (ages 11-29) had the most entries with 75, followed closely by the adult division (ages 20-69) with 71 entries. The Mature Texans division (ages 70 and up) brought in 47 entries for a grand total of 213.  All judges have been through a multi-session training and are from out of the county. They thoroughly enjoyed seeing the entries and shopping at the Arts and Crafts Show afterward!  Below are the results showing Best of Show and Best of Show winners:
