Nine Snohomish County students have been honored by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards as some of the most talented teen artists in the nation. They have each received an award from the distinguished program, which provides recognition and scholarship opportunities to teen artists and writers, and will be honored at a ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York.
The ceremony will take place on June 1, and selected winning pieces will be displayed at Parsons The New School for Design in Manhattan from June 1-16. In honor of the students, the Empire State Building will be lit gold on the night of May 31.
The local students who received an award for their work in photography, painting, mixed media or drawing are Jonathan Carroll, Grace Lackey, Xochitl Briones, Katie Gerhardt, Holly Hillman, Emily Nelson, Angelica Rabillas and Kristin Devey.
