Three high school students received medals at the 2022 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards
WAUWATOSA, WI — Three Wauwatosa high school students were honored as National Medalists at the recent 2022 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
Evelyn Schumann of Wauwatosa East High School was awarded a silver medal for her “Charcoal Portfolio,” as was Melina Voravong for “Chasing Redbird.” Evelyn Winter Skyberg Greer, a sophomore at Wauwatosa West High School, received a gold medal for her animation, “The Garden.”
Additionally, Evelyn’s animation received the American Visions Award, the highest distinction possible. She is the only Wisconsin student to have earned this national-level award. Evelyn and her family have been invited to attend the awards ceremony, which will be held at Carnegie Hall in New York City on June 9, 2022.
“We are so proud of our students for their talent and dedication,” said Dr. Demond Means, Superintendent of the Wauwatosa School District. “Their high-level success is a testament to the results that can be realized with hard work and commitment. A big congratulations goes out to these talented young artists.”
Hosted by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, the annual Scholastic Art & Writing Awards celebrates talented students in grades seven through 12 by allowing them the opportunity to showcase their work to a wider audience. Student winners have the opportunity for their original works to receive recognition and exposure through exhibitions, scholarships and publications. National medalists are also eligible for scholarships of up to $10,000.
This year marks the 99th edition of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Over 100,000 teens from across the United States and Canada submitted more than 260,000 pieces of original work, which jurors evaluated based on originality, technical skill and personal voice or vision. Jurors are eminent figures in the visual and literary arts, and a number of award winners have gone on to serve as jurors after finding success in their fields.
