Each year the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards - the nation's longest-running and most prestigious scholarship and recognition program for young artists and writers in grades 7–12 - recognizes outstanding works by high school students on a regional and national level. For the first time ever, two Hill School students received recognition at the national level for their writing.
The pieces written by Rachel Liu '20 and Sheridan Ameo '21 were among the 2,900 works of art and writing receiving national medals that were selected from the more than 18,000 works awarded regionally with Gold Keys.
Rachel received a Gold Medal for her "Flash Fiction" piece, Moles, and a Silver Medal for her "Flash Fiction" piece, On Realistic Tension. Rachel is the second Hill School student to receive a national Gold Medal and the first Hill School student to earn both a Gold and Silver Medal in the competition.
At the regional level, Sheridan won nine Gold Keys and three Silver Keys; Rachel won four Gold Keys and five Silver Keys.
Congratulations, Rachel and Sheridan!
