DGN Fine Arts Salutes 2016 Scholastic Art Award Winners #WeAreDGN #99Learns


The Fine Arts Department at Downers Grove North High School is proud to announce the results of the judging from the 2016 Scholastic Art Awards held at Downers Grove North High School and hosted by the Community High School District 99 Fine Arts Departments.  1,053 student artists from 30 area schools submitted 2,894 works of art for adjudication. North High artists won 87 awards, including 1 American Vision Award (Best of Show), 34 Gold Key Awards, 27 Silver Key Awards, and 25 Honorable Mention Awards.

 “We are very excited to host the regional exhibition at North High,” said Brayer Teague, Fine Arts Department Chairman. “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.”

Community High School District 99 will host the Scholastic Art Show Regional Exhibition from February 7-12, at the North High School campus Main Street Lobby (4436 Main Street, Downers Grove, IL 60515).  The public is cordially invited to attend the Exhibition Opening and Artists Reception on Sunday, February 7, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm.
