The students were chosen through the Louisiana Art Education Association's (LAEA) 2013 Youth Art Month contest. The theme is "Art Shapes in the World."

"For the sixth consecutive year, it is my honor to display winning art pieces from the Louisiana Art Education Associations's Youth Art contest at the Governor's Mansion," said First Lady Supriya Jindal in a news release.
