Students Win Scholastic Art Awards

Winners of the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers' 2012-13 Scholastic Art Awards were honored at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts on Saturday. MLWGS students doubled the number of awards compared to last year, captured three of the five American Visions awards for the entire region, and won the most overall awards for any program in the region. Among Maggie Walker students, there were:

  • 23 Gold Key awards, including two Gold Key Portfolios and three American Visions nominees
  • 22 Silver Key awards, including three Silver Key Portfolios
  • 27 Honorable Mention awards, including five Honorable Mention Portfolios

Gold Key works are being exhibited at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts through March 16 and will be forwarded for national adjudication by the Alliance. National awards include the Gold Medal, awarded to the most outstanding works in the nation, and will be announced on March 15. Gold Medal artists are invited to a National Awards Ceremony in New York City, where their works will be exhibited. More information can be found at the Alliance and Virginia Museum websites.
