WILMINGTON — Dana Madison, a senior at Wilmington High School, recently won a Scholastics Silver Key for her artwork, “Samaritan.”
Her artwork is currently on display at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. Her Silver Key award included a $1,500 scholarship to the Art Academy of Cincinnati.
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are one of the nation’s longest-running and prestigious recognition programs for teens in grades 7-12. The awards include Gold Key (which progress to the national stage), Silver Key, and Honorable Mention. The organization collaborates with regional institutions to provide different levels of scholarships for artists who win awards at the regional level.
Dana’s artwork was submitted with hundreds of other works in the Southwest Ohio region.
The awards ceremony took place at the School of Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) in Cincinnati on Feb. 1. Students were recognized on an individual level after keynote speakers congratulated and encouraged students to continue pursuing their creative passions.
This is Dana’s first year in Ceramics and she is currently taking Ceramics 2.
