Three Park Students Earn National Medals in 2016 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards


Three Park students have earned National Medals in the 2016 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. Congratulations to Bridget Curly ’17, Mollie Eisner ’17, and Ruby Miller ’16! Their work was selected by creative professionals as the most accomplished in the nation. 

Bridget Curley ’17
Awarded: Silver Medal in Writing

Mollie Eisner ’17
Awarded: Silver Medal in Writing

Ruby Miller ’16
Awarded: Silver Medal with Distinction in Art Portfolio

This year, nearly 320,000 works of art and writing were submitted; less than 1 percent were recognized at the national level. Students receiving top awards have been invited to attend a ceremony at Carnegie Hall on June 2, and to participate in showcase events at Parsons School for Design at The New School and Pratt Institute’s Pratt Manhattan Gallery in New York City. We’re proud to have these students represent our school in this year’s Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. (Twenty-three Park students were honored in both the Art and Writing categories at the regional level — click here for the full list.)
