Senior Photographers Earn National Recognition

Congratulations to two of our senior photography students! The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers has presented Anna Merz and Noor Essakalli with National Medal Awards. Anna won a gold medal for her work “Vacant” and Noor won a silver medal for “Synchronized".

More than 110,000 students submitted nearly 320,000 works of art to the 2020 Scholastic Awards. The photographs by Noor and Anna were selected by some of the foremost leaders in the visual arts for excellence in originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. Only 3,000 works received a National Medal, which places them within the top 1% of all submissions!
