Lausanne Celebrates Scholastic Art Awards Winners

Congratulations to all our student winners for this year's Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards Competition, sponsored by the Brooks Museum League.  Once again this year, Lausanne students are very fortunate to have been so widely recognized in this nationally acknowledged competition.
 
The Scholastic Art Awards is a nation-wide art awards program, which started in 1923.  It is the longest-running and most prestigious art awards program for artistic young people in the country.  The Mid South Scholastic Art Awards recognizes students from the Memphis area, and also schools from Mississippi and Arkansas, so any recognition in this competition is truly an honor.  Gold key winners will go on to compete at the national level, and winners at the national level will be announced sometime in the Spring (date to be announced). Out of thousands of entries and almost 800 awards given to approximately 46 tri-state (TN, MS, and AR) area schools participating in this year's Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards, Lausanne students were recognized with results of 38 total awards, including 7 Gold keys, 17 Silver keys, 14 Honorable Mentions, and 1 Junior Best-In-Show award this year.
