Seniors Stephen D'Antonio, Sophie Moosberg, and Lauren Wilson Earn National Art Awards
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth since 1923. In 2019, students across America submitted nearly 340,000 original works that were blindly judged by leaders in the visual and literary arts. In January, Archmere seniors Stephen D'Antonio, Sophie Moosberg, and Lauren Wilson were recognized with Gold Key awards at the regional level of the 2020 Delaware Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
Gold Key awards advance to the national level of the competition, where they compete with all Gold Keys in the nation for a National Medal. This month, Stephen, Sophie and Lauren all received Silver Medals at the national level of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition.
Students winning National Medals are eligible for additional publication, exhibition and scholarship opportunities. Only approximately 5% of Gold Keys are recognized with National Medals nationwide.
