Congratulations Emma and Shannon! After being recognized by a Gold Key regionally, they both received National Gold Key awards.
In New York City, panels of nationally renowned artists, art professionals, and arts educators review Gold Key works from across the country. The artwork is judged in the digital format. Jurors select work for national recognition based on three criteria, 1) Originality, 2) Technique, and 3) Emergence of a Personal Vision.
All national award recipients (approximately 1,800 students) are invited to National Events in New York City in June 2015.
