Saint Andrew’s School is pleased to celebrate Upper School Art students for their showing at the Palm Beach County Regional Scholastic Arts Awards competition. Warm applause is due to fourteen Upper School art students who won a total of sixteen awards. Saint Andrew’s also recognizes thirty-six Upper School students for submission of artwork to this regional competition.
Special recognition goes to Keith Truong ‘19, whose submission called "Riverbed" won him a nomination for an American Visions Medal. Keith’s work was one of five nominated in the region out of more than 800 submissions. The American Visions Medal, the highest of the regional honors, is given to one artist from each of the nation's regions. Keith's work will be judged for adjudication by a panel of jurors in New York City. Medal winners will be recognized during the Scholastic Arts and Writers Awards National Exhibition this June in New York City.
Gold Key works have been sent to New York for national review. Students who received Gold Key recognition are judged nationally by a panel of art experts, and if selected will earn National Medals. National medalists are recognized at the National Ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
