Students Earn Gold Keys at National Scholastic Art and Writing Awards
Congratulations to Dalia Chairez '24 and Irene Gay '21 for earning medals in the national art and writing competition. Chairez earned a Gold Key in photography for "Mi Papa." Gay earned a Gold Key in writing for her poem, "Sometimes We See Ourselves," and a Silver Key for her flash fiction short story, "Mary, by Mary."
Chairez and Gay both earned Gold Keys at the state competition in January and advanced to the national competition. Only 2,000 works received a national medal in art or writing, which places Chairez and Gay in the top 1% of all submissions. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades 7 through 12. Congratulations to Dalia and Irene!
