Bloomington seniors earn National Scholastic Art Competition medals

Published on Apr 01, 2020

Bloomington seniors Phoebe Sinner and Mae Yurecko (Kennedy High School) and Sam Wallace (Jefferson High School) have earned medals in the 2020 National Scholastic Art Competition. 

Sinner’s colored pencil drawing “Mumble” was awarded a gold medal, and Wallace’s ceramic form “Cathedral Vase” and Yurecko’s marker drawing “New Year” were both awarded silver medals. National medals are the most prestigious honor high school students can receive for their creative work.

The three students advanced to the national competition after earning Gold and Silver Key Awards at the 2020 Scholastic Art Competition at the University of Minnesota.

Sinner’s “Mumble” will be included in a national exhibit of gold medal-winning works in New York City.
