Amara Kattrein's "Fav1" won a silver medal in photography in the 2014 National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition.
continued Cazenovia students were awarded a total of eight Gold Keys at the regional competition. Kattrein, who won two top awards in the photography category, was joined by schoolmates Tiffany Bender (photography), Dylan Burrell (painting), Dana Carmeli (art portfolio), Kelly Johnson (photography), Samantha Marti (mixed media) and Tori Meade (digital art).
From the outstanding pool of regional Gold Key recipients, an impressive panel of creative-industry experts chose more than 1,800 of the most talented students — representing 47 U.S. states as well as students in Washington, D.C. and American schools abroad — to receive national medals. These artists, authors, critics, educators and skilled professionals blindly judged works based on originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal vision or voice — the original three criteria of the program’s founding in 1923.
