Lausanne would like to congratulate all our student winners for this year's Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards Competition, sponsored by the Brooks Museum League.
In this year's nationally recognized competition, Lausanne art and design students were acknowledged with 25 total awards, including 5 Gold Keys, 7 Silver Keys and 13 Honorable Mentions.
"Congratulations to all our Scholastic Art Awards winners, and congratulations to all their teachers. It takes all of us, within our process, to develop the drive, imagination and enthusiasm in young people to produce results such as these," said Visual Arts Coordinator & Upper School Visual Arts Teacher Michael Naya. "We are so proud of our talented Lausanne artists."

The Scholastic Art Awards is a nationally recognized 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).
If you would like to see Lausanne gold key winners' work, along with all the winners in the region, the work will be on exhibit at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art from January 23 – February 21 2021. This year, a virtual ZOOM award ceremony will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2021 from 2-3 p.m. All educators, students, family members, and school administrators are invited to tune into this year's virtual ceremony.
