The Results Are In!! (Part I)

Earlier in the semester, over 30 students from the Topeka West art department entered their work to the 2009 Scholastic's Art & Writing Awards. The results from the competition were posted online yesterday and I am very pleased with the outcome!!

If a student's art work is accepted into the show it is awarded in one of four categories: a Gold Key award (top honors and the piece is sent on to be juried for the National Scholastic's Art & Writing Awards!), a Silver Key, Honorable Mention, or Entrant.

Topeka West photography students were awarded:

GOLD KEY:
Kelli McGuire - Photography portfolio
Andrew Martin - Digital photography

SILVER KEY:
Elizabeth Akins - Analog photography
Andrew Martin - Digital photography

HONORABLE MENTION:
Emily Park - Digital photography

ENTRANT:
Elizabeth Akins - Analog photography
Emily Park - Digital photography

A huge congratulations to these students and a sincere thank you to all of the students who used their time outside of the school day to prepare their work for this competition!

I will be traveling with a group of students to the Gold Key Ceremony held at the Wichita Center for the Arts on February 7th. I will have photos to post of the show once we return!
