Eleven Art Students Chosen for 100 Neediest Cases Contest

MICDS Upper School Drawing, AP Drawing, and Painting students created meaningful works of art for the St. Louis Post Dispatch’s 100 Neediest Cases campaign competition. The campaign brings awareness to the United Way’s efforts to support needy families during this holiday season, and volunteers select the artwork from area schools that are paired with the stories. Artists in the top 40 have their work published in the Post-Dispatch alongside the 100 Neediest Cases stories through mid-December.

Congratulations to our 11 talented student artists!
