Wauwatosa East student wins textile design award

Sam Zanowski, a junior at Wauwatosa East, has been awarded a Scholastic Art & Writing Silver Key for his textile design 'Ham it Up.'

He was one of fifty-three students from the state of Wisconsin to be recognized on a national level this year. His work will be on display in New York, at an exhibition that showcases more than 1,000 of the freshest and most engaging visual and literary works from students nationwide in grades seven through 12.

His art teacher is Kelly Frederick Mizer.

Zanowski created his award-winning textile in a design course in which students learn how to communicate ideas visually by exploring the different ways in which color palettes, text, and imagery work together.

This year, nearly 320,000 works of art and writing were submitted, with the top 1 percent being recognized at the national level. The exhibition displaying Zanowksi's textile will run June 2 through 12.

Wauwatosa students compete culinary contest

Three Wauwatosa East High School students — Stella Brooks, Bekah Pryzbyl and Katey Rettler — and four Wauwatosa West students — Michael Kochanski, Braeden Schrems, Nailah Shabaka and team alternate Justin Moua — competed on March 8 at the 2016 ProStart State Competition, part of the National ProStart Invitational.

The National ProStart Invitational is the finale of a nationwide series of state competitions hosted by partner state restaurant associations. Students must impress judges from the industry with skills they've developed through ProStart, a technical education program.

The East and West students competed at Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee against 26 other state high school teams. West placed 12th and East placed 15th.

The culinary competition highlights each team's creative abilities through the preparation of a three-course meal in 60 minutes, using only two butane burners, and without access to running water or electricity. They are evaluated on taste, skill, teamwork, safety and sanitation.
