Several WCS students are earning national recognition for their creativity by being named Scholastic National Medalists.

Seven high school art students earned either a Silver or Gold Medal from the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Independence High’s Madison Gabay also won an American Voices and Visions Medal for her work, Hands in My Hair. The American Voices and Visions Medal is only given to a handful of students from each region.

A Gold Medal signifies some of the most outstanding works of art in the nation. A Silver Medal recognizes work demonstrating high honors.
