Ashley Students Receive National Art Award


Julia Koff and Haewon “Leah” Song, students at Ashley High School, both received a National Silver Medal in the 2016 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. This past fall and winter, students across the country and from places abroad submitted approximately 320,000 works of art and writing to the 2016 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Nearly 18,000 works earned regional Gold Keys and advanced to New York City for national adjudication. Julia’s and Leah’s Gold Key artwork were two of just 2,400 pieces that received National Medals.

“I am so proud of these two girls,” said their art teacher, Angela Hewett. “Winning at this level puts Julia and Leah in the top 1% of artists and writers that submitted to the 2016 Scholastic Awards. Very impressive!”
