Scholastic Art Awards
Wayzata High School students have won 80 awards in the annual 2015 Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards, the longest-running, most prestigious national art competition.
The Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards is broken into three categories: Gold Keys, Silver Keys and Honorable Mention. Students at Wayzata High School won 23 Gold Keys, 18 Silver Keys and 39 Honorable Mentions – an unprecedented number of awards for Wayzata and the most awards presented to a school in the state.
Gold Key award-winning work will automatically be entered into the National Awards competition in New York. National medal recipients will be announced mid-March and awards will be presented at Carnegie Hall in May.
The Scholastic Art Awards are designed to foster creative expression by secondary students and to recognize and encourage achievement in the creative arts by offering visibility and scholarships. The awards represent work from a broad range of art disciplines including drawing and painting, crafts, sculpture, digital art and photography.
The exhibition of student artwork was on display at the Regis Center for Art on the University of Minnesota campus and is currently on display in Wayzata High Schools’ Fine Arts display case in the D-Wing of the building.
