The artistic talents of three high school students will gain plenty of exposure in the coming months as their winning banner designs will be enlarged and hung from the Bob Hope Airport terminal tower.
Senior Daniel Lee from Crescenta Valley High, freshman Angus Crosby from Burbank High School and sophomore Chance Woods from Pasadena High School each placed first in their school districts for the airport’s 2014 Tower Banner Student Art Contest, and will have 16-by-25-foot versions of their designs on display on a three-month rotation.
Now in its seventh year, a record 358 students submitted entries under the theme, “Skies of Freedom.” The entries were narrowed down by each city’s arts and cultural commission.
The first-, second- and third-place winners from each school district were recognized by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday.
Crosby’s winning entry depicts a child holding a model toy airplane, a pilot and an astronaut.
