Klein ISD Student Wins ‘Best of Show’ for Rodeo Art

Klein ISD Student Wins ‘Best of Show’ for Rodeo Art

Haude Elementary student Isabella Tabora is leaving her mark on the Rodeo Art Award scene. The talented artist was just given the Best in Show award for the Elementary level at the recent 2020-2021 Rodeo Art Awards.

Tabora’s piece entitled Pueblo Treasures advanced to committee judging and obtained the Reserve Grand Champion of Elementary division award. Her artwork was then auctioned off for $22,000 at the School Art Auction.

“When I was waiting in line to go on stage, I was so nervous and thinking to myself, ‘how in the world am I going to hold this huge framed art piece?’ Then it was my turn to take the stage, and I felt like I belonged there like I had done this before,” said Isabella. “It was so exciting every time a new buyer would throw out a new price for my artwork. I kept praying and thanking God the whole time for this amazing gift. “

Isabella’s award for her beautiful artwork consisted of the Reserve Grand Champion trophy and money from the live auction which will positively impact her future. Isabella’s artwork competed against over 100 other pieces from several local Houston-area school districts.

“Having our first Elementary Division auction winner is monumental,” said Leah McWhorter, Assistant Director of Fine Arts. “This is just one example of our outstanding Art teachers and students in Klein ISD Fine Arts. Our future is bright!”

Congratulations to Isabella! Your passion for Art and drive to succeed is something to be celebrated, and your Klein Family is happy to cheer you on in your next endeavors.
