Congratulations to Caroline Sweeney for receiving a Gold Medal & American Visions Award and to Maya Gurewitz and Jessika Turnbull for receiving Silver Medals at the National Scholastic Art and Writing Awards!
More than 100,000 students submitted more than 260,000 works of art and writing to the 2022 Scholastic Awards. Their work was selected by some of the foremost leaders in the visual and literary arts for excellence in originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. Less than 2,000 works received a National Medal, which places them within the top 1% of all submissions! Since 1923, the Awards have celebrated teen artists and writers from across the country.
Their work will be published in Online Galleries at artandwriting.org in June. Their names will also be listed in Yearbook 2022, a companion to the annual publications Best Teen Art and Best Teen Writing, which feature selections of works by National Medalists. Caroline will also be attending the Awards Ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York this June.
Congratulations to Amelia, Logan, Joshua and William for earning National Merit Scholarship recognition! These students are among an initial 50,000 nationwide to score at this level on the PSAT/NMSQT exam. Great job!
