JEHS students win 42 CNY Scholastic Art awards

A total of 19 students from Jordan-Elbridge High School received 42 awards in the 2020 CNY Scholastic Art competition. Nine students earned gold keys, or the highest honor. Also, junior Tiffani McMahon earned six honors including three gold and three silver keys.

otal of 22 students from JEHS took home a total of 34 awards. In the previous year, 15 students earned a total of 25 awards.

Thousands of students from more than 400 school enter their works in the annual program, which also includes students from about 13 Central New York counties. Individual pieces and portfolios are awarded Gold Key (highest honor), Silver Key and Honorable Mention. Gold Key award winners will be considered for national-level recognition. All of the student’s works were judged by professional artists, photographers and educators.

Art teacher Katie DeLorenzo attributes the continued success of the students to talent, hard work, a willingness to take artistic risks and the comradery in the department.

“The kids are always willing to try out new things, and they always support each other. I think when you have that comradery, you are more likely to be successful,” she said. “That’s one of the things that keeps pushing them forward.”

The artwork will be on display at the Whitney Applied Technology Center on the Onondaga Community College campus through Feb. 29.
