Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Recognize Three AHS Students


Andover High School students, Jenny Jung, Mary Kuan, and Fiona Jungmann all received recognition from the National level of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards because of their accomplishments in writing and art.  

In recent weeks, the girls received recognition on the state level, receiving many Silver and Gold Key Awards. In addition, Jenny Jung received an American Voices Nominee award for a dramatic script and Mary Kuan received an American Vision Nominee for a drawing titled “Washed Out.”  

Both Jenny Jung and Mary Kuan then received college scholarships for $5,000 each because of their American Voices and Vision Nominee awards.  The Boston Globe Foundation chose both girls from more than 15,000 submissions for demonstrating the highest level of achievement in craft, creativity, and writing. 

The state awards moved all three girls work to a national platform.  Recent notification came to Fiona Jungmann who won a National Silver Medal for her art.  Jenny Jung won a National Silver Medal for one of her pieces of writing and a National Silver Medal with Distinction medal for her portfolio as a whole.  Mary Kuan won three National Silver Medals and the American Visions Award at the National level.  Only one other art student in the state of Massachusetts received the American Visions Award at the National level.  

All three girls are to be congratulated for their esteemed honors.  They have been invited to a National Ceremony at Carnegie Hall in NYC on June 10th and June 11th.
