After many months of hard work, of editing and revising, and of crossing fingers, the time to find out whether a work has received a Gold Key has finally arrived! Students across the country and around the globe spent hours making their creations, and it was our privilege to view and read them all. So, without further ado, here are the 2019 Gold Key, [Silver Key, and Honorable Mention] recipients!

  • William Adam ’19, Silver Key
  • William Adam ’19, Honorable Mention
  • William Adam ’19, Gold Key
  • Jessica Fatzinger ’20, Honorable Mention
  • Kelli Gifford ’20, Honorable Mention
  • Brandon White ’19, Silver Key
  • Brandon White ’19, Gold Key
  • Brandon White ’19, Silver Key
  • Brandon White ’19, Silver Key
  • Dasha Zhuravleva ’19, Honorable Mention

Art and writing submissions are processed and judged first at the regional level by Affiliate Partner organizations. Students who receive Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention Awards are celebrated in local exhibitions and ceremonies across the country.

Gold Key works are then automatically advanced to the national level where work is considered by some of the foremost leaders in the visual and literary arts.
