National Scholastic Award-winning student artwork will be on display at the National Exhibition from May 31 – June 8, 2019 at the Sheila C.

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards is a nationally recognized art awards program which started in 1923, and is the longest running and most prestigious art awards program for artistic young people in the country. Winning at the national level in the Scholastic Art Awards is exceedingly rare. In fact, of the 36 Tennessee schools recognized, Lausanne is one of 10 schools in Tennessee to win more than one national award. Lausanne is one of only three schools in Tennessee to win more than one national gold medal and only four schools in Tennessee received more recognition than Lausanne (over 2 medals). Of the schools who received two medals, Lausanne received two gold medals with the other schools receiving a gold and silver or two silver medals.
Congratulations goes out to our students and all our art teachers who helped them grow artistically throughout their tenure at Lausanne.
Way to go, Lynx!
