"We are pleased that so many Middle and Upper School students received awards for their artistic excellence, especially during such an unusual year," said Visual Arts Department Chair Anna Reynolds. "The Scholastic Art Awards are a great place for students to receive regional and national feedback on their creative ideas, technical ability, and presentation."
After adjudication in the 2021 Northeast Florida Scholastic Art Awards, awards are also eligible to go on National-level awards. This year, Senior Natalie Higingbotham's mixed media piece, Pink Tights?, achieved a National Silver Key.
The Scholastic Art Awards are the nation's longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens, and being recognized at any level—Honorable Mention, Silver Key, or Gold Key, at the regional or national level, is an achievement.
