Students recognized with Scholastic Art Awards

 Holy Family artists submitted a variety pieces to the Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards and several pieces are winners of Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention awards.  The Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards have recognized the ingenuity, vision, and talent of America’s youth since 1923. The numbers of participants has increased ever since their inception.

The artwork is contributed in 13 different categories. The artists range from grades 7 to 12. Each artist is eligible to submit one or more pieces of art. They can also submit portfolios made up of 8 pieces of artwork.

Art that is judged for successful inclusion in the Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards exhibit is awarded either a Gold Key, Silver Key, or an Honorable Mention. The MSAA exhibition is held at the U of M’s Regis Center for the Arts. The award ceremony will take place at the Weisman Art Museum. Any pieces that receive a Gold Key are automatically entered into the National Scholastic Art Awards. The NSAA takes place in New York.
