Student artists Leah Hughes '17 and Lillian Pettigrew '18 have been named National Medalists for their artistic work in the 2017 Scholastic Art Awards (SAA), a program of the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers based in New York City.  

Leah's painting, "Fragile Dreams," was awarded a Silver Medal and Lillian's painting, "Mira," was awarded a Gold Medal in the national competition. Their works were selected from an original pool of over 330,000 works of art submitted by high school students from around the country. National Medalists represent less than 1% of submissions to the SAA program. Leah and Lillian are two of the 29 SPA students who earned recognition at the state level of the competition.

The SAA program is one of the oldest and most prestigious competitions for high school artists and writers. Created in 1923, past recipients of SAA honors have included Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, and Lena Dunham.
