Three Newport Central Catholic art students received awards and recognition in the Art Academy of Cincinnati 2017 Scholastic Art Competition.

Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention recognition and scholarships were awarded to the following NewCath students:

Wyatt Guthrie — one Gold Key

Helena Kaelin — one Gold Key and two Honorable Mentions

Anna Schneider — one Gold Key one Silver Key and three Honorable Mentions.

Educators, media, vendors, students and their families attended the event.

The annual Scholastic Art Awards is the nation’s longest-running, most prestigious recognition initiative for creative students (grades 7-12) and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.

Last year 609 schools represented our region including Turkeyfoot High School, Roger Bacon High School, Oldenburg Academy, Walnut Hills and Lakota East and West High Schools, just to name a few.

Gold Key recipients go on to compete for national medals in an Exhibit and National Award Ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

An exhibition will take place through February 3 at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, 1212 Jackson Street in Cincinnati. Approximately 1,000 winning pieces of art will be displayed, out of nearly 5,000 pieces submitted and judged.
