Five St. Louis Community College-Meramec students have been recognized for their artistic talent in the 100 Neediest Cases art competition conducted by the United Way and St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Meramec students captured the top two places.

Of the hundreds of entries, the judges, comprising of instructors and local artists, chose 40 entries that stood out.

April Troll won first place and Jelani Brown was second. Jason Kanzler (ninth) and Hoo Tack Lee (10th) were among the top 10. Kirk Kristofferson was 24th.

The 100 Neediest Cases is an annual initiative by the Post-Dispatch that helps individuals and families in need. The art contest asks students from more than 100 schools to create a work that represents a case featured in the newspaper.

The winning entries are in a gallery on the Post-Dispatch website, and all contest entries are on display until mid-December at the Missouri History Museum, 5700 Lindell Blvd. in St. Louis.
