Eleven Madeira City School District students have received recognition for artworks they submitted to the National Scholastic Art Competition; the nation's longest running program for creative students.
Each year nearly 5,000 pieces of area students’ art work is submitted for judging, with only about 20% of those submissions accepted. Entries that show originality, skill, and the emergence of a personal vision then have the opportunity to be selected for Gold Key, Silver Key, or Honorable Mention recognition. Gold Key recipients continue in the competition for national medals in March.
Madeira Middle School (MMS) student Adrienne Stufft received an Honorable Mention in Drawing and Illustration. Madeira High School (MHS) Scholastic Art Award Recipients are: Brooke Conner (Painting Honorable Mention, Painting Gold Key), Carly Scott (Mixed Media Honorable Mention), Gabi Hugentobler (Digital Art Gold Key), Izzy Schaffner (Printmaking Silver Key), Jennifer Whitt (Digital Art Honorable Mention, Photography Silver Key and Honorable Mention), Kate Kolkmeyer ( Digital Art Silver Key), Mattie Waltz (Printmaking Silver Key), Nil Kocaoglu (Painting Gold Key and Honorable Mention), Rhys Blackmore (four Digital Art Gold Keys), Samantha McKee (Drawing and Illustration Silver Key and Honorable Mention).
The MMS art teacher is Liz Rossi-Reil and the MHS art teacher is Jill Dulgerhoff. Student work will be displayed at the Art Academy of Cincinnati January 28 - February 8, 2019 with an award ceremony February 1.
