EHS Earns 37 Scholastic Art Keys

Euclid High School students have earned 12 individual Gold Keys and are headed to the National Scholastic Art Awards in New York City this March! This marks the highest number of pieces Our Euclid has have ever had going to Nationals. Additionally, EHS students won 10 Silver Keys and 15 Honorable Mentions for a grand total of 37 Euclid High School winners, making us one of the top 3 schools in Cuyahoga County with the most winners.    

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated. Each year, increasing numbers of teens participate in the program, and become a part of our community–-young artists and writers, filmmakers and photographers, poets, and sculptors, along with countless educators who support and encourage the creative process.

The Regional Scholastic Art Competition identifies creativity among junior high and high school students in the Cuyahoga County region. The students represented in this exhibition were selected from more than 3,000 entrants from approximately 100 area schools. A jury of 16 noted art educators and professional artists selected these works on the basis of their quality and artistic promise.

Each student whose work has been selected for display received a certificate of merit indicating his or her rank as Honorable Mention, Silver Key, or Gold Key Finalist Exhibitor.

From the key-winning work, the jury designated 75 Gold key finalists whose pieces will compete with 15,000 national entries for awards, cash prizes and scholarships. The Jury also selected 15 Portfolio Award nominees that will compete in the nationals for larger scholarships and recognition.  A national exhibition of the winning work will be held in New York City, during the summer of 2018.
