February 12, 2018 —CHELMSFOD HIGH SCHOOL AND McCARTHY MIDDLE SCHOOL
Several Boston Globe-Scholastic Art awards have recently been bestowed upon students from the Chelmsford High School and McCarthy Middle School in Chelmsford.
Since 1923, The Scholastic Art Awards have offered millions of students in grades 7-12 enrolled in public and private schools and programs the opportunity to display their art works for regional and national recognition. The objective of the program is to foster the confidence of young artists and to invite students to broaden their horizons while winning national recognition. The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards are the largest and longest running programs of their kind in the country.
The Boston Globe Scholastic Art Awards Program is administered by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and works are judged by respected members of the art education community.
There are several levels of awards:
American Vision Nominee
Senior Portfolio Gold Key
The Gold Key winning works will be on exhibit at Boston’s City Hall in March. In addition, work by students who received a Gold Key will be shipped to the national competition. If selected at the national level, their artwork may be chosen for exhibition in New York for the National Exhibit.
All students who received awards will be invited to participate in an upcoming episode of the CPS Fine Arts Department TV show, “Spotlight on Fine Arts,” that airs on Telemedia educational channels and at chelmsfordtv.org.
