Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Thirty Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210 students were honored this past weekend by having their artwork selected for inclusion in the 2015 Scholastic Art Competition in Downers Grove.

The Scholastic Art Competition is the largest national art competition out there, said Phil Labriola, the art department chair for the district. It is a big honor just to have a piece accepted into the show.

In all, about 2,800 pieces of artwork from several high schools and junior highs were submitted to this years regional competition at Downers Grove North High School. Just under 900 of those pieces were accepted into the show.

Among them were 55 pieces from the four Lincoln-Way High Schools. Eleven of the pieces received gold key awards (signifying high levels of originality, technique and personal vision) and will advance to compete at the national level in New York this summer.

Nineteen others were honored with silver key awards (signifying achievement worthy of recognition); 25 pieces received honorable mention awards (signifying work that demonstrates artistic potential).

Area residents will have an opportunity to see Lincoln-Ways winning art pieces at an opening reception on Feb. 8th from 1:004:00pm at Downers Grove North High School, 4436 Main St., Downers Grove. Visitors can also view the pieces during school hours 8:00am4:00pm from Feb. 9- 13.
