This fall, 91 students from Washington High School submitted artwork in the Chuck Baird American Sign Language Honor Society Competition. The competition seeks to expose students to the artists, genres, and visual expressions of Deaf culture as expressed through art. Students at all levels of ASL instruction are encouraged to participate. This year, the Chuck Baird Memorial Art Competition focuses on portraits of Deaf individuals by Deaf artists.

Danicya (Taco) Lyles and Cotee Parker’s submissions were recognized for being part of the top 10% of national submissions while McKim Mitchell and Sophia Ray’s were selected as national finalists - considered for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place.

These students are being honored nationally among those in the Deaf community for their artistic expression, demonstrating care and concern for members of the Deaf community.  To learn more about the American Sign Language Honor Society and Chuck Baird Art Competition, visit:
