Two Watkinson School students from West Hartford were among the 11 from the school to receive accolades from the Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards.
Senior Noah Ziff received a Gold Key for his illustration entitled “8192” and junior Jack Newhouse received an honorable mention for his photo entitled “City Grays”.
The Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards program is a professionally juried event which recognizes only the best Connecticut student artwork. This year, 11 Watkinson students won awards or honorable mentions.
Watkinson is in the top 10 schools in the state for number of awards. One school received 15 awards, one school received 13, and seven schools received 11 awards – a remarkable feat given that Watkinson has 250 students and is competing against large, regional public schools.
Watkinson School is Hartford’s oldest independent school for grades 6-12/PG. Learn more at an upcoming info session for prospective families on Feb. 13 or April 3 at 9 a.m.
