Four students receive Scholastic art & writing awards

Four Upper School students have been recognized for their exceptional work at the 2022 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.  

Jeff Duong ’22 earned a Silver key for a piece entitled “canoe” and Honorable Mention for his “Girl in the Foliage” painting. 

Dylan Furbay ’24 was recognized with Honorable Mention for his G-Flat Major drawing and for a poem he wrote called “Wrinkles”.  

James Moncur ’23 received a Silver Key Award for his S(tear) drawing. 

Pierce Ryan ’22 was recognized with Honorable Mention for his painting entitled “The Last Dance”. 

Students are judged on their originality, technical skill, and emergence of a personal voice or vision.  

“For the students to create something is always special, but for them to be willing to have somebody evaluate it is one of the more challenging things to do,” Studio Arts Department Chair Ricky Sears ’99 said. “You never know how somebody is going to interpret what you’ve done or understand what you’re trying to communicate visually. ...I love the willingness that they have to put themselves out there, to be evaluated because it’s never easy.”  

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is the nation’s longest running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens.
