In a great week for EWS artists, students recently took home several Scholastic Awards!
This Visual Arts awards included 1,750 entries, 88 teachers, and 18 districts. Through individual interviews with an adjudicator for each entry, the entries are evaluation on Student Research and Application to Work, Execution and Technique, Aesthetics and Critical Judgment, & Personal Expression. Entries are given a ranking of 1-4, with a ranking of 4 receiving a medal.
We are proud to announce that each EWS student artist who entered received a medal, with senior Lexi M. receiving 2! One of her works will advance to the State finals.
EWS 8th Grader, Ava Y., also took home a Scholastic Award this weekend, winning a Gold Key regional award for her poem, "Birth." Ava's poetry will now move on to national judging in New York City.
