Loveland, Ohio – Seniors Lillianne Rohling and Sophia Stokes were recently honored with a Gold Key Scholastic Art Award. The two attend Loveland High School and competed in the Southern Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeastern Indiana Art Region.
Lillianne Rohling’s mixed media work “Empty” and the painting “Touch” by Sophia Stokes will be eligible to compete for national honors in New York City.
Loveland High School students Lauren Hents, Ruthie Timman and Zak Griffiths were also honored with the Silver Key in the Scholastic Writing Awards.
In addition, Rohling was recognized for her art portfolio “On Earth.” The works of all the southwest regional winners can be viewed in a virtual exhibition hosted by the Art Academy of Cincinnati here.
The Scholastic Art Awards is a 97-year-old national art competition that lets students compete with others in their region and then with other students nationally. The program fosters creativity and provides a platform for young people to gain recognition and compete for scholarship funds.
