Congratulations to Olivia Siegal who, after winning a New England regional award, went on to win a national Gold Medal for the Scholastic Art and Writing Competition.
The Scholastic Art and Writing Competition is the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades 7–12. This year, a record-breaking 330,000 works of art and writing were submitted across 29 categories, which include poetry, photography, sculpture, humor, editorial cartoons, video game design and more. Olivia’s gold medal was for her piece called “Ballerina” in the Flash Fiction category. National Award winners will be honored at Carnegie Hall next month. Congratulations Olivia!
