Congratulations to 8th grader Inga Wilhelmy on earning three recognitions in the regional Scholastic Art & Writing contest, including a Gold Key, the highest honor. Inga also earned a Silver Key and an honoralbe mention for her work.
The Cleveland Institute of Art hosts the regional competition that recognizes creative achievement in area 7-12 grade students. The young artists compete for cash prizes, medals, and scholarship awards. A panel of local professional artists, art educators, writers, and writing educators jury the exhibit and select the awarded pieces from nearly 3,000 entries. Students who receive Portfolio Awards and Gold Key Awards continue to the national competition held in the spring in New York City.
This year’s regional winners will be honored at an awards ceremony on January 13 at the Cleveland Institute of Art and their work will be on display in the CIA’s art gallery through January. Congrats again to Inga!
