Nine HIDOE students, all Leilehua High School, who earned top recognition in the Hawaii Regional Scholastic Art Awards have won medals in the national competition. The Scholastic Art Awards is the longest-running, largest and most prestigious student recognition program in the United States. The Ultimate Fundraiser would like to congratulate these exemplary student artists of Hawaii nei, who earned medals in the national Scholastic Art Awards program. Their work is on display through April 15, 2016 at the Hawaii State Art Museum.
Leilehua High arts teachers Keith Sasada and Larry Taguba guided and instructed these fine artists. Also, Sean Lopez, earned a national medal for his photography for the second year in a row. The Scholastic Arts & Writing Awards is the longest-running and most prestigious student recognition program in the United States. The Awards were established by M. R. Robinson in 1923 to encourage, foster, and reward creativity among our Nation’s students. The nonprofit organization The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers mission is to oversee the national competition, provide guidance and support for the next generation of artists and writers.
Through the Scholastic Awards, teens in grades 7 through 12 can apply in 29 categories of art and writing for their chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited and published. Every year, more than 250,000 entries are submitted. These finalists go on to represent their region in the National judging held in the spring in New York City. Panels of distinguished artists review over 15,000 works of art and select the national award recipients. For the list of winners, click here.
