Painter Andy Warhol, author Stephen King, filmmaker Robert Redford, and now Landon Bears Matt Lowrie '18 and Jackson Neeb '22 — each of these individuals has won a National Medal in the prestigious Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
Matt and Jackson added their names to the selective list this March when they earned National Silver Keys (the second highest award) for their submissions in the 2018 competition, which received some 300,000 entries in 29 categories from grades 7–12 students nationwide.
Matt scored his National Medal for Jenga (pictured at top), a striking photograph of zebras he snapped while traveling in South Africa last summer. Jackson won his for Stolen Identity (pictured directly above), a boomerang painted with an intricate design made almost completely of dots.
In addition to Matt and Jackson, 13 other Landon Middle and Upper School students earned regional Scholastic Art Awards in February.
