HS students selected for 100th Scholastic Art awards

Three Mexico High School students had work selected to be featured in the upcoming 100th annual Scholastic Art awards.

The 2023 awards exhibit will be displayed between Jan. 11 and March 3 at Onondaga Community College’s Whitney Applied Technology Center with an awards ceremony to honor the youth artists Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 7 p.m.

From Mexico High School, Madalyn Dann received a Gold Key award for her ceramic piece “Reputation,” Harley Potter was awarded a Silver Key for her ceramic piece “Spring to Life” and Alexis Bickford earned honorable mention for her ceramic piece “Ebony Outline.” Their works are featured in photos below.

“I can't fully put into words how proud I am of our student artists,” said Brittany Malone, an art teacher at Mexico High School. “It is an incredible feat to get artwork into Scholastics, let alone win gold and silver keys. I am glad that Mexico's talent is on display for a large audience. It is a great feeling for the individual artists, the classroom and the community to be recognized and celebrated in the visual arts.”
