Six MMS Students Win Scholastic Art Award


One of the main objectives of the MMS curriculum is to encourage a high skill level in academic, artistic and athletic pursuits. Every day we are reminded of the exceptional talents of our students and the quality of their abilities in each of these pursuits. Fulfilling one area of this objective are six Junior High students who have recently been recognized for their artistic abilities by receiving the Scholastic Art Award.

Simon B., Hajira F., Madison K., William K. and Elizabeth M. have all received an Honorable Mention in the Scholastic Art Awards, while Ariana P. has been awarded with the Gold Key Award. These regional winners will be celebrated at the Milwaukee Art Museum on February 2nd, where they will be introduced individually on stage and will have a chance to speak about their work. By receiving this award at a regional level, all the artists qualify for judging in the National Scholastic Art Awards with the opportunity to have their work displayed at New York City’s Carnegie Hall.

The Milwaukee Art Museum will be displaying the artwork of some of the regional winners from February 2nd – March 17th. While limited space does not allow for all students’ work to be displayed, the award-winning art of Gold Key recipient Ariana P. will be on display at the museum during that time.

This is an incredible achievement for these artists and an excellent representation of the talents of our students at MMS. What’s more, four of the six award-winning pieces were made using the print press that was purchased with money donated to the MMS Fund last year. Clearly, your MMS Fund donations have gone a long way to help our students thrive in the arts.

Join us in congratulating these talented young artists – it’s quite an achievement to be recognized! To learn more about the Scholastic Art Award, click here.
