The Pavilion Selects Carver HS Art Student Jennifer Castillo’s T-Shirt Design for 2017 Musical Scores Event
The shirts will be given away to more than 6,000 Houston area students that attend the program in May.
Each year, the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion rewards area students with a performance. This forms part of The Pavilion’s educational outreach program Musical Scores. The event takes places at The Pavilion later this spring semester.
Musical Scores is one of The Pavilion’s most successful educational outreach programs. It has grown from serving 200 students its first year to 6,000 students and teachers from nearly 30 schools. The program primarily serves academically at-risk, middle school students. Students earn the privilege to attend the event. They must display model behavior and achieve specific scholastic goals. Once the students have achieved their goals, or “musical scores,” The Pavilion rewards them with a free performance.
The event has a guest speaker to inspire the students to achieve their aspirations. The Exceptional Student recognition and awards segment follows the guest speaker. Afterwards, students enjoy non-stop entertainment. The Pavilion brings in entertainers for the occasion.
The Pavilion’s T-shirt design competition is open to everyone taking part in the program. At Carver HS, several graphic art students submitted work for consideration. This year’s winning design went to the magnet school’s Jennifer Castillo. Her digital art teacher is Matthew Kirkpatrick.
Students attending the Musical Scores event will receive a free lunch. They will also receive the complimentary T-shirts for their achievement.
The Pavilion will honor Jennifer at the event.
