The annual Scholastic Art Awards winners were determined recently, and we are proud to announce that, as usual, numerous Memorial students received awards this year!

Fewer than half of all works submitted receive any recognition from the panels of professional artists, college art professors, and other people employed in the arts who blindly adjudicated (meaning they didn’t know who created the works or where they go to school) the 2600 entries submitted from students from all over the state in 17 categories.

Memorial students won over 30 awards, including 13 Silver Keys, and 10 Gold Keys (the top award given). See the full list of winners below.

All works that win a Gold Key are sent to New York City for national adjudication and the chance to win a National Gold Key. Only a tiny percentage of works are awarded National Gold Keys, so wish your classmates luck! National Gold Key winners are invited to a star-studded awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall in June! Memorial students have been invited in each of the last 2 years and got to see speeches by Alec Baldwin, Tim Gunn, Ken Burns, and many others, at the awards ceremony.
