Upper School Students Win Record Number of Scholastic Art Awards
Students in the Upper School Art Department won a total of 96 Regional Scholastic Art Awards, and a record number of Gold Keys; the most prestigious accolade. Students swept the awards with their work in painting, drawing, photography, jewelry and more.
Upper School Visual Arts Department Chair Melissa Ford said the department is thrilled with this year’s awards results.
“Our students earned more Gold Keys than in any previous year. We are so proud of all their efforts,” said Ford.
The artwork is on display until February 17 at The Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach. Students earning Gold Keys will advance to the national competition in New York held at the end of March.
