Governor's students win national awards

BYFIELD — Three Governor’s students recently won top awards in the 2013 National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition. Two of the awards were Gold Medal writing awards — Imogene Robinson ’13 of Newburyport earned hers for a short story and Myles Badger ’13 earned his for a personal essay/memoir. One of the awards was for art — Helen Shi 15, won a Silver Medal for her ceramics piece.

Last year Milan Gary ’12 won a Gold Award at the national level for her ceramics piece. This year is the first time a Governor’s student has won a National Scholastic Award for writing. This is the 10th time the academy has won a National Scholastic Award for art.

There was only one high school in all of Massachusetts this year where students won National Scholastic Awards in both art and writing — The Governor’s Academy.

These awards are the highest honors given to high school writers and artists in America. The three students will receive their awards at a special event at Carnegie Hall on Friday, May 31. Their winning work will be displayed in New York City during the summer of 2013.
