WCS Art Students Win Gold, Silver Keys
Published January 19, 2022
Students across the district are showing off their creative side through the 2022 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.
Around 1,500 works of art by Middle Tennessee students were submitted, and 119 Gold Keys, Silver Keys and honorable mentions were given to WCS middle and high school students. All Gold Key winners are entered into the National Scholastic Art Awards. Their artwork is available to view at the Frist Learning Center Great Hall at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens in Nashville.
"This is my very first time as a teacher to participate in such an acclaimed competition," said SHS art teacher Sorrell Dugan. "While we are honored to have Gold and Silver Key winners, we are also just as proud of each of our student artists who had the courage it takes to compete at such a high level."
Three WCS student art pieces were also nominated for a National American Vision Award. Brentwood High student Angela Huo's painting, Grandma; Franklin High student Lily Arnold's work, My Identity; and Ravenwood High student Sophie Lee's piece, Identity Glitch could win a Silver or Gold Medal or the American Vision Award. National medalists will also be eligible for scholarships of up to $10,000.
