The very first Alhambra Chalk Art Contest was held Sunday, September 15, 2019, in conjunction with the City of Alhambra’s Annual Latino Heritage Festival.
Attendees were able to enjoy the weekly Farmers Market, live shows at the Latino Heritage Festival, and watch artists create amazing works of art using only pastel chalks.
Members of the City of Alhambra Committee on Arts and Cultural Events (CACE) judged the competition.
Aaron Edmundo Hernandez won a cash award of $500.00 for Best of Show.
Alhambra High School students, Shiyi Luo and Zoe Chen, working as a team, won $250.00 as Runner Up.
Shelsea Flores won $250.00 for People’s Choice.
Cash awards were sponsored by the Downtown Alhambra Business Association (DABA).
