Canfield art students, Emily Dunlap and Steffie Marciniak, have earned Gold Medal Awards and national recognition in the 2019 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. A Scholastic Gold Medal Award indicates that Dunlap, a senior at Canfield High School, and Marciniak, a junior, have demonstrated that they are among the nation’s most talented young artists. Of the nearly 350,000 works of art and writing submitted, from across the country, by students in grades 7–12 this year, only the top 1% received a National Medal.
Dunlap and Marciniak are invited to join with other students, from across the nation to attend events in New York City on June 5–7, 2019. There will be a National Ceremony at Carnegie Hall, which will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2019. This year’s speaker and Alumni Achievement Award winner is astronomer Dr. Lucianne Walkowicz, who received a Scholastic Award for painting in 1996.
