PLEASANTON, Calif. — Safeway here has named Alejandro Pulido, a student at South Mountain High School in Phoenix, the grand-prize winner in the company's fifth annual “Lucerne, The Art of Dairy” art contest. This year's “Taste of Moo-sic”-themed contest generated a pool of 9,600 entries, all illustrating visions of music and dairy products. The field was winnowed to 30 finalists, who were given the opportunity to transfer their artwork onto life-sized fiberglass cows. Pulido's design is “dominated by moody deep tones of red and blue, [and] depicts a cow playing a saxophone and milky piano keys floating above an ice cream cone-shaped trumpet,” Safeway said in an announcement. His prize includes $20,000 for his school's art department, plus $5,000 each for himself and his art teacher. Runners-up included first-place winner Tani Pettit of North Tahoe High School in Tahoe City, Calif., and honorable-achievement winners Grace Nguyen of Evergreen High School in San Jose, Calif., Chung-Yu “Mago” Huang of Interlake High School in Bellevue, Wash., and Qin Liu of Northeast High School in Philadelphia.
