A South Lakes High School teen was among the 21 students from Fairfax County public schools who earned national medals in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards program.
Gabrielle Baughman will receive a silver medal for a painted self-portrait, FCPS said in a press release.
In June, an award ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City will honor the national medalists, according to the press release.
The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards recognize student artists with categories including architecture, ceramics and glass, comic art, design, digital art, drawing, editorial cartoon, fashion and more.
