Silver medals for 2 Bay students in NYC Scholastic Art and Writing competition

"Family Is Not Always Blood" by Bay High senior Maria DiLallo.

Two Bay High students were recognized with 2018 National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards silver medals. One silver medal in writing went to senior Emma Legeay for her poem, "Mrs. Plath"; and one silver medal in art went to senior Maria DiLallo for her painting, "Family Is Not Always Blood." Judging for the competition took place in New York City.

The awards followed a strong showing for Bay High School at the Cuyahoga County Regional Scholastic Arts Competition, with students winning 12 Gold Key, 15 Silver Key, and 23 honorable mention awards.

Nearly 350,000 works of art and writing were submitted to the 2018 Scholastic Awards. Hundreds of jurors across the country judged the works in 29 categories of art and writing, such as poetry, sculpture, short story, painting, critical essay and video game design. More than 2,800 students received National Medals this year, joining a list of notable alumni like Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Robert Redford, Kay WalkingStick and Zac Posen.
