Central Art Students had a tremendous year at Scholastic Art Awards, receiving 8 Gold Keys, 4 Silver Keys and 10 Honorable Mentions.  The Scholastic Art Awards is one of our most competitive art shows with schools from across the state participating.  Only 125 middle school works were recognized and 22 of them came from Central Middle School (more than any other middle school or junior high in the state) and more of our students were recognized than any previous years. Gold Key Prize artworks will be on display at the Regis Center for the Arts West Gallery from January 30 - February 17, 2018 and images of Gold Key works will be forwarded off for a chance to be recognized at the National level.  I have included a presentation with the student's artwork so make sure to say congratulations if you see them.
