DGN Visual Artist Honored at National Scholastic Awards / Carnegie Hall #99Learns #WeAreDGN @Dist_99

The most advanced visual artists and writers from around the nation were celebrated at Carnegie Hall this past June.  Aubrey Saha, earning a National Gold Medal, traveled to New York to receive her national medal.  In addition to Saha's accomplishment, DGN students Jessica Novotny, Olivia Wojciak and Angela Wong each earned National Silver Medals this year.

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art and Writing Writing Awards are the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious award and recognition program for creative teens. This year the Scholastic Awards received 320,000  submissions for the 2016 program year. Receiving a National Medal from the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards places these student artists within the top 1% of all submissions from a national pool of art work.
