Teen Artists from across Louisiana to meet in Shreveport March 4 - 6 for state convention hosted by Benton High; donations needed

Youth Art Council of America student president Kayla Green and sponsor Theresa Laws of Benton High School announce that the Northwest LA chapter of YACA will be hosting the State Convention at the Clarion Hotel in Shreveport from March 4th – 6th, 2010.

"State Convention is a three-day, 2-night fun and activity-filled gathering of teens from all over Louisiana. Approximately 300 students participate in art exhibits, competitions, demonstrations, games, performance-based contests, a dance, an awards banquet and much more!" says Laws.

"It costs approximately $150.00 per student to attend convention; we are asking for donations and sponsors to help off-set the costs for the students," says Green.

"Initial deposits are due by January 20th, and at this time we are still $1000.00 short! We also need help in providing door prizes to be given out throughout the weekend and items to be placed in student and teacher goody bags (snacks, notepads, key chains, pencils, art supplies, etc.)."

All Donors and Sponsors will be gratefully acknowledged during Convention on signage that will be displayed in the main banquet hall and will receive a special invitation to attend the art exhibit.

Please help in making this Convention a memorable art experience. For further information on how to donate, provide sponsorship, or if you have questions, please contact Theresa Laws at Benton High School ~ (318) 549-5304 or email me at
