Congratulations to the Coventry High School students who have won awards in the esteemed Scholastic Arts and Writing Competition.

Senior Emma Smith won a Gold Key for her digital photograph “Cadence.” A Silver Key was awarded to junior Mary Levesque for her drawing,“The Fly.” Honorable mentions were awarded to senior Paige Deane for her digital photograph “Tomorrow Never Knows,” senior Grace Zima’s digital photograph “Dance of Revenge,” and junior Cecelia Gardner’s digital photograph “Ethereal Vision.”

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards are a high quality, professionally juried event, which recognizes only the best Connecticut student art work. All Connecticut art students in public, parochial, and private schools are invited to participate. Student artwork is juried by professional artists and university art faculty and is selected on merit for inclusion in a state-wide art exhibition held at the Hartford Art School. Beyond the honor of being selected for this high-quality exhibit, students may be awarded Gold or Silver Keys and Honorable Mention Awards in each of seventeen media categories.
