CNY Scholastic Art Awards

     Published on   Tagged under:    District News   

Every year junior and senior high school students from the Central New York area enter the annual CNY Scholastic Art Award competition. The competition was founded by Scholastic Inc. and is sponsored by M&T Bank.  Last year alone the Central New York region produced 16 national award winners.  The pieces are judged for entry in the national competition, local cash prizes and special recognition. Area art teachers who volunteer with the CNY Scholastic Art Advisory Council coordinate the program.
 
This year, the annual art competition had several winners representing the Syracuse City School District high schools including 3 Gold Key winners, the highest honor. December Aung (Nottingham), sculpture, Sydney Cardarelli (Nottingham), fashion and Ema Furuya (Nottingham), comic art all won Gold Keys.  Henninger’s William Latour won a Silver Key in the portfolio category and Ema Furuya also took home a Silver Key for sculpture.  Student submissions from Fowler, Corcoran, Henninger and Nottingham High Schools also received honorable mention.

The art is on display at OCC's Whitney Applied Technology Center.  It is free and open to the public through February 27th.
