On March 14th the National Scholastic Art and Writing Awards announced the National Medalists. The National Medals students are competing for are Gold, Silver, or an American Vision Awards. For National Judging only the art works that received Gold Keys at the Regional Level go on to compete, this narrowed down the amount of pieces competing to 320,000 works. Out of this outstanding number of pieces Noah Maxwell's printmaking, Alternate Colors, received a National Gold Medal. This art work will be displayed in New York in June and then will travel the country for two years in a cameo show of all the Gold Medal Works. In June Noah will be awarded his Gold Medal Award at Carnegie Hall in New York City along with Ms. Scott receiving her National Gold Educator Award! This is the second year straight Crestwood has had a National Medalist student and educator. Crestwood's Art Program has received multiple state and national awards over it's time but it never stops being exciting! Congratulations to our amazing artists and all their hard work!
