Mariemont City Schools Art Students Shine in State, National Competitions

Avery Messner artwork

Students in all four buildings of the Mariemont City School District are showcasing their artistic talents and earning state and national recognition in recent art competitions. The following are a list of the competitions and the student awards won.
Scholastic Art and Writing Awards
The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards are the nation’s longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens. The Scholastic awards have sparked creative growth in teens since 1923 and are judged by luminaries in the visual and literary arts. National medalists are eligible for scholarships up to $10,000.
Out of nearly 5,000 artworks submitted for judging, 1,000 winning pieces of art were accepted into the Cincinnati regional show. Works were judged on originality, technical skills, and emergence of personal voice. Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention recognition were awarded to the students.  Students who received a Gold Key will go on to compete for national medals in New York.
In addition to the medal winners from Mariemont this year, senior Avery Messner had her work selected as the cover art for all Scholastic Art Awards programs and marketing materials and was also showcased on a Billboard in Cincinnati.
