MHS Artists Win Big at Scholastics:
Students’ Art on Display Jan. 29-Feb 9
 
Mason High School visual art students put on an outstanding performance in the Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Twenty-nine MHS students won a grand total of 50 awards in this year’s competition.
 
"Our students work very hard, and to have their work chosen to represent our school in the most prestigious high school art competition in the area is an honor," shared MHS Art Educator Tina Roberts. "The Gold Key winners will have their work continue on to the national competition!"
 
The student artists will be honored for their outstanding work during an awards ceremony on February 9 at the School for the Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati. Their works can be viewed at the 2018 Scholastic Art Awards Exhibition. This exhibit will be on display from January 29 until February 9 at the Art Academy of Cincinnati.
 
Ten of Mason’s student artists were awarded a total of ten Gold Keys in their individual categories. Winners of the Gold Key, amounting to top honors in a particular art category, include: Nihal Ahmed, Hanna Collins, Jared Curry, Naomie Gao, Stephanie Krekeler, Tasha Norris, Kaavya Ramachandhran, Ranjani Ramasubramanian, Julia Rosado, and Grace Tang.
 
The Scholastic Art Awards is a program recognizing the fine arts talents of area schools and students from Northern Kentucky, Southeastern Indiana, and Greater Cincinnati Schools.
 
In 2017, students submitted more than 330,000 works of art and writing to the Awards.  Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
