High School Students Win Scholastic Art Awards

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

kiki finn scholastic gold key winnerLandmark High School students won a total of 30 awards at the regional level of the 2019 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Five students won the Gold Key Award, five the Silver Key, and 13 students earned a total of 20 Honorable Mentions. (See below for a full list.)

"This year students from all classes and media were recognized with Scholastic Art Awards, including Foundations, Photography, Ceramics, Drawing, Graphic Design, Printmaking, and Portfolio. This also means that each of our five teachers is responsible for instructing and mentoring award winning students," said Art Department Co-Head Beth Jamieson. "Students from all levels from ninth to 12th grade were also recognized, which speaks not only to the strength of our most advanced students, but also to the potential in our youngest artists. Our students do not make their work to get awards, however, there is something rewarding about seeing their work recognized beyond the boundaries of Landmark, alongside their peers from across Massachusetts." 

The work by Gold Key recipients will be on display from March 16–25, 2019, at Breed Hall, Tufts University, 51 Winthrop Street, Medford, MA  02155, and will be judged at the national level by a panel of renown artists, authors, educators, and industry experts. The Silver and Honorable Mention work will be put on display in Landmark's Inspiration Gallery.
