Freehold High School and Freehold Township High School sweep top three in the Freehold Regional High School District (FRHSD) annual Spooktacular Window Painting Contest.
FRHSD art students took to Freehold Borough streets Thursday, to dress up the town in time for Halloween. While students painted their spooky fall creations, judges faced the daunting task of picking their favorite paintings and ranking the top three.
First place went to “The Raven” painted by Freehold High School’s Amber Malim, Erica Sosa and Kayla Johnson. Their work can be seen in front of Fidia's Art Gallery, on Court Street.
Freehold Township High School artist Rachel Smith took second with her painting on Elegant Creations titled “Frankenstien” while Ryan Jackson and Danielle Havens came in third with their painting on the Freehold Spirit Shoppe.
The Freehold Intermediate School also got in on the Halloween Window Painting action this year, by decorating the Boro Plaza Strip Mall. First place went to Arly Morales, Nicole Ray, Heather Rojas and Jessica Mexquititla for their painting of a big pumpkin. Second place went to Lindsey Duarte and Roger Vega for their painting of a big head with birds, and third place went to Mackenzie Parke for her painting of the headless horseman.
