“Spontaneous Joy” by Stephanie Luo.

Lawrence High School senior Stephanie Luo was selected for a Gold Key and Honorable Mention award for the 2019 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards in Northeast Art Region-At Large.

Her painting “Spontaneous Joy” was chosen for the Gold Key award, and her mixed media work “Islands of Broken Glass” was selected for Honorable Mention. While both are honors, Gold Key works are considered the very best of all submitted works, and automatically considered for national-level recognition.

LHS sophomore Arjun Agarwal received Honorable Mention Awards for his two photos, “Finding the Courage” and “The Explorers.”

At the Philadelphia Flower Show, senior De’Asia Jones won Honorable Mention for her teacup entry in the medicinal plant category. LHS art teacher Karen Donnelly won second place in the flower child category for her stained glass pressed flower entry.
