Local students win national art awards

Twelve Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students were named among the most talented artists in the country by the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The students won medals for their outstanding art and will be honored at a ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City in June. The students will also attend workshops with professional artists during the trip.
One student, Sally Baek, a senior at Butler High School, was honored with the Portfolio Gold Award, the highest level of achievement. Sally will receive a $10,000 award to help pay for college, as well as special recognition on the stage at Carnegie Hall. Only 15 students nationally won this award.

There are students at the school who want to participate, but cannot because their parents can’t afford instruments and the school does not have an extra supply. The school needs financial resources to purchase new instruments or to fix those that are damaged, so NWSA is also seeking financial donations during the drive. […]
