Area students honored for their artistic works

Local students were among those honored during the 2020 Scholastics Art and Writing Competition.

Over 40 teachers from Trumbull, Mahoning, Columbiana, and Ashtabula counties entered over 300 works from students in drawing, painting, photography, digital art, and more to be judged at the regional level to see who would represent our area and compete at the national level this coming spring.

United High School received two Silver Keys by Shyanna Coleman and Victoria Solomon (educator Heather Connor).

Also receiving recognition were Grant Menough, Makenna While, and Zac Watkins of Salem. Grant received four Silver keys (one being on his portfolio) with Makenna and Zac each receiving one. Grant also received a Gold Key in the show for his oil painting titled Tyler. Grant’s Gold Key piece will now move onto New York and compete at the national level this coming spring.

Winners at the national level will be announced on March 17. A national ceremony will be held June 9 in New York City depending on virus protocols.
