Special to the Reporter

Glen Rose High School senior Ashley Thompson has been selected a finalist in the 15- to 18-year-old three-dimensional art division in the 2011 Star-Telegram Stock Show Art Contest.

Ashley has been invited to a special awards ceremony on Jan. 29 at 4 p.m. This event is held to honor the finalists, their families and teachers.

The most exciting part is the contest placings that will be announced and awards presented to all of the finalists. The event will be held in the Cactus Room in the Amon Carter Exhibits Hall at the stock show.

Finalist entries will be displayed in the concourse of the Amon G. Carter Jr. Exhibits Hall throughout the duration of the stock show, which runs from Jan. 14 through Feb. 5. After that the exhibition will move to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History until Feb. 20.

Ashley is planning to attend the University of North Texas in Denton this fall.
