2020 Scholastic Art Awards

Dozens of ‘Iolani School students -- from grades 7 - 12 -- have artwork on display at the 57th Annual Hawai‘i Regional Scholastic Art Awards Exhibition at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum (HiSAM) through March 15.

Each work, which was judged along with thousands of statewide entries, was recognized at the 2020 Scholastic Art Award Ceremony on Feb. 15. ‘Iolani students received 15 Gold Key, 15 Silver Key (including a Silver Key Art Portfolio) and several Honorable Mention awards in all visual art disciplines: Drawing, Painting, Photography, Design 3-D, Ceramics and Mixed Media.

One of the top five awards, the American Visions Award, went to Zoe Stenger '20 for her photograph titled "Good Health Pharmacy." Regional American Visions and Gold Key artwork will go on to national adjudication in March. Nikki Shimao '20 and Alexandra Hankins '20 also received additional awards of excellence from MORI by Art+Flea at HiSAM's Gift Shop.

Please view the slideshow of the artwork below.



The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards program is the longest-running and most prestigious student arts recognition program in the United States. It was established in 1923 by M.R. Robinson to encourage, foster, and reward student creativity across the country.

Please go see the beautiful art created by 'Iolani students and others from across the state at this wonderful free exhibit at the Hawai'i State Art Museum. HiSAM is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
