Award-Winning Student Artwork on Display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Lynn Schulte, MS & PS Art Department Head

The Prep School Studio Art Department would like to congratulate all our students on their fine work in photography, drawing, illustration, mixed media and digital art! The 2021 NYC Scholastic Awards Gold Key Exhibition will be on view through May 21, 2021 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York City. You may view photos from the exhibition below. 

Each year students submit their work to the regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards where all entrees are considered for Gold Key, Silver Key, Honorable Mention, American Visions Nominee and American Voices Nominee Awards. These are presented to students along with celebration ceremonies and exhibitions in each region.

(Please see below for the list of NYC Scholastic Art award winners from CGPS.)

Works that win a Scholastic Gold Key in the regional contests are automatically considered for the national awards, including Gold Medal and Silver Medal, and direct scholarship awards. This year two of our students won national medals for their work in photography. Chloe L. ’23 received two Silver Medals for Space Cowboy and Skate Day, and Victoria R. ’23 received a Gold Medal for JUSTICE IS (pictured above). Congratulations to all our talented students on their fine work!
