George School is pleased to announce that Eric Yu ’19 and Nora Greer ’19 received national scholastic art awards. Eric received a gold medal for a tray he created in Woodworking and Design and Nora received a silver medal for her photograph created in Digital Imaging and Design.
“Finishing the project and receiving a gold medal would not have happened without Carter’s assistance, which I am very thankful for,” said Eric. “For me, the gold medal is not only a pleasure but also a motivation that makes me work harder on my next projects.”
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades seven through twelve.
This year, students submitted more than 330,000 works of visual art and writing to the Scholastic Awards; more than 90,000 works were recognized at the regional level and celebrated in local exhibitions and ceremonies. The top art and writing pieces at the regional level were moved onto the national stage, where more than 2,700 works earned National Medals. National Medalists and their educators will be celebrated at the National Ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City in June.
