Three T.C. Williams High School seniors earned Gold Key Awards for their artworks in the 2008 Scholastic Art and Writing Award Competition, in which they competed among 6,000 “Region-At-Large” student submissions from across the country. Six hundred students in the competition received Gold Keys, awarded to the most exceptional entries in each category.
Abigail Dillingham earned two Gold Key Awards for a painting titled “Self Portrait” and a mixed media work titled “Found Landscape.” Claire Ennslin received a Gold Key Award for her drawing “Still Life with Books,” and Sarah Zuidema garnered a Gold Key Award for her drawing titled “Nude Study.” The students received lapel pins and certificates.
Gold Key winners’ works advanced to a national level of competition, the winners of which will have their works exhibited in New York City. The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers is completing the national judging process for 10,000 works which qualified for national adjudication. Approximately 1,000 students will receive additional recognition, earning National Gold Awards, National Silver Awards and American Visions/Voices Awards.
