David Vega  is the recipient of a National Gold Medal in the Scholastic Art Competition.  He will receive his gold medal at Carnegie Hall in New York City in June. His drawing was submitted for the regional/state Scholastic Art Competition in December of 2018. He received a Gold Key in the regional/state competition, then advanced to the national competition, where he was also selected to receive a Gold Medal.

David’s art will be displayed in different museums and galleries throughout the United States and he will also be published in the 2019 Best Teen Art Scholastic Art Book.

Miss Amendolara said, “Out of 340,000 works of art, only the top one percent receive this medal, so this is a prestigious award that David has earned on a national level.  It is the first time in our school’s history a student has received such a high honor.”

David Vega said, “Receiving this honor means the world to me because of how much artwork was entered into the competition. It pleases me that people all around the world will get to enjoy the pieces I create. I am motivated to keep working hard every day.”

Congratulations David!
