Shaker Heights Schools Artists Earn 52 Awards in Regional Scholastic Art Show

Aaliyah Williams artDecember 23, 2019—Congratulations to the student-artists at Shaker Heights Middle School and High School whose artwork won the highest number of awards—52, in all—in the regional Scholastic Art Show. Our students earned 24 Honorable Mentions, 11 Silver Keys, 16 Gold Keys, one Silver Portfolio and one American Visions nominee. (Click here to see a slideshow of the Gold and Silver Key winners.)

Senior Aaliyah Williams was named one of five American Visions nominees from the region for her painting, "African Diaspora over English Breakfast" (at right). The American Visions Medals are the highest regional honors given to one artist from each region. A panel of jurors in New York City will select one artist from each region to receive an American Visions Medal. These Medalists are celebrated during National Events and at the National Exhibition in New York City.

Our students’ work was judged along with artwork by students in Grades 7-12 from nearly 50 other schools located throughout Northeast Ohio. The student winners will be honored at the Scholastic Art Competition Ceremony and Exhibition Opening on Saturday, January 18 at the Cleveland Institute of Art. The artwork will be on display through Friday, January 30.

Young artists who enter the Scholastic Art Competition compete are eligible 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 Gold Key Awards for individual works and portfolios continue to the national competition held each spring in New York City.
