Celebrating Student Artists

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. Students from all over the United States submit work in sixteen visual art categories, with the regional recipients forwarded to New York in February for national adjudication. The National Awards ceremony and exhibition will take place in June in NYC with a Gold Medal awards ceremony in Carnegie Hall.
It is with tremendous pride that Derryfield announces that 23 individual students and a total of 61 winning pieces have received recognition from the New Hampshire Scholastic Art Awards, the country’s more competitive juried art competition! This tops last year's 44 winning pieces and is, once again, the most recognition Derryfield art students have ever received from this awards program (35 awards in 2018, 30 awards in 2017, 8 awards in 2016).
Derryfield senior Rose Speigel was one of four students in the state to receive a Portfolio Gold Key for her photography portfolio, titled “Mundane.” Recognized portfolio students planning on attending post-secondary schools and majoring in art will have an opportunity to be considered for additional scholarships provided by area New England colleges. In fact, Rose also received a $1,000 scholarship from the New Hampshire Art Educators’ Association.
An award ceremony in February recognized the student accomplishments, and the winning artwork is now on display in the Inspiration Loft in the Science & Innovation Center.
Congratulations to all of the student artists who took a risk and submitted their work this year!
