Bayshore Elementary School students Enjanae Taylor and Savannah Stein received scholarships to attend Girls Rock Camp Houston, a non-profit organization that hosts an annual two-week camp Aug. 1 through 5.
During the camp, girls from ages 8 to 18 learn how to play instruments, form bands and create original works to be performed at a closing showcase. The students' essays and applications were selected as standouts among a large number of this year's applicants, according to Bayshore principal Vickie Gentile.
The camp is being held at Rice University, with the Aug. 7 final performance to be held at Fitzgerald's, a historical live music venue in Houston.
Lindsay Burleson, Bayshore art teacher, worked with her students on their submission packets. "These young ladies worked very hard on their submission essays and folders," she said. "I am so very proud of them, and I am sure they will have a life-changing experience at Girls Rock Camp."
