High School sophomore Dylan Dugourd has been named a national medalist in the 2018 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Less than 1 percent of the nearly 350,000 works of art and writing submitted to the competition, sponsored by The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, earn a national medal.
Dugourd’s video game design was selected by creative professionals as the most accomplished in the nation and recognized with a silver medal. He is invited to attend the national ceremony at Carnegie Hall in June where he will receive a certificate commemorating his achievement and participate in a series of student showcase events.

“Receiving the award is motivating,” Dylan said. “To be able to share my creation on this level is exciting. It shows me that my hard work is paying off.”
