The 2017 Scholastic Art Contest winners have been announced.  The Scholastic Art and Writing awards were first hosted in 1923 making it the oldest program encouraging youth creativity in the United States, according to the website.  It is an important competition for all students in the counties of  Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne.

“The Scholastic’s is the largest art competition in the area,” said art teacher Mrs. Deborah Bovio.

Of the 239 regional portfolio submissions, three Adams students managed to win Gold Keys. Gold Keys are the highest regional award, which automatically submits the winning work to the national stage for further judgment. Gold Key winners include senior Elizabeth Botkin, senior Jenna John, and senior Audrey Pilack. Jenna John won two Gold Keys due to two portfolio submissions. Audrey Pilack won Best in Show for her photography.

“It felt impossible to win (Best in Show) when compared to the other art. I was grateful and surprised,” said Audrey Pilack.

Out of 6,200 individual submissions, three students managed to win Gold keys. These students are sophomore Yejin Chang (for sculpture), junior Noelle Dunbar (for photography), and Jenna John (for printmaking). Silver key (second place) winners for an individual submission include sophomore Ashley Jacobson (photography), Jenna John (painting), and junior Erin Johnson (photography).
