In the Scholastic Art Award pool, only 46% of entries receive any recognition at all.
Every Dublin student who entered received recognition.
There are honorable mentions, silver keys and gold keys, and silver and gold key portfolios. Portfolio keys are awarded to seniors only, on a body of eight artworks. Seniors can submit two distinct portfolios for adjudication. The portfolio keys are the highest level of prize except the handful of “American visions, Best in Show” Awards.
As a school, we won twelve Honorable Mentions, ten Silver Keys, and nine Gold Keys. By way of reference, St. Paul’s School—which has between three and four visual art teachers, a huge endowment, and over 500 students — won eight gold keys.
