Aili Gibson, a senior at Greeley West High School, was awarded a blue ribbon for her artwork by the Colorado Association of School Boards.

Aili competed with students around the state in the annual CASB Art Show and Contest. Usually, winners are honored in person at the winter CASB conference. This year, the students were honored virtually.

Aili’s painting reflects different cultures from around the world.

“I was wanting to bring awareness to different cultures around the world that are losing their influence, whether it be because of colonization or just less people practicing it,” Aili says. “I just really wanted to give them attention that they are lacking.”

Aili plans to study exercise science in hopes of becoming a physical therapist. She says she plans to continue pursing art as a hobby and plans to enter other art contests.

She says winning the award is confirmation of her artistic abilities.

“Like everyone, I started not knowing how to do art at all, and I just kind of improved over time,” Aili says. “So, winning means I’m really getting somewhere with it. Of course, I can keep improving, but I am on the right track.”
