DGN Artists Garner 91 Awards at Scholastics

The Fine Arts Department at Downers Grove North High School is proud to release the results of the judging from the 2012 Scholastic Art Awards held at Downers Grove North High School and hosted by the Community High School District 99 Fine Arts Departments. 25 area high schools submitted more than 1,800 works of art for adjudication.  North High artists won 91 awards including 27 Gold Key Awards, 30 Silver Key Awards, and 34 Honorable Mention Awards. These works are currently on exhibition in the Main Street Lobby of Downers Grove North High School through Friday, February 10th.

“We are very excited to host the regional exhibition at DGN,” said Brayer Teague, Fine Arts Department Chairman at North High. “This show is always an amazing display of student creativity and a testament to the wonderful art teaching that is happening in District 99.”  According to Teague, the art teachers from both North and South High School play an important role in putting the exhibition together.  “Our District 99 art teachers are the engine behind this regional affiliate of the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.  Their dedication and tireless commitment enables student artists from all over the suburban region to have their work evaluated by professional artists.”
