Earlier this winter, three Auburn High School students were recognized in the Boston Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Gold Keys were awarded to Dakota Gleason for her painting “Ophelia” and to Olivia Obrebski for her drawing “In Flames.” Selected from thousands of Massachusetts’ entries, their art will be judged this month in the national contest.
Honorable Mentions were awarded to Sen Miglin in the Poetry category for “Diary entry from the future, God’s (or whatever) message to me”; to Dakota Gleason for her painting “Lilac”, her mixed media “Eve” and her painting “Winter Blues”; and to Olivia Obrebski for drawing “Tea Party” and her entire portfolio “Story Of My Life.”
The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards program has been part of The Boston Globe’s commitment to the community for decades, and to the development, education, and well being of young people in Massachusetts. Thanks to support from the Boston Globe Foundation, the Scholastic program introduces the Boston community to a new generation of young artistic talent and is just one of the many ways the Globe and its audience of readers support local talent.
