Two middle school students received National Scholastic Art Awards for work created in teacher Janine Campbell’s art class.

Eighth-grader Ethan Pipe won a National Silver award in architecture for his rendering, “Modern Home2” and eighth-grader Cam Schuelke won a National Gold award in jewelry for his piece, “Modular Necklace.” Cam has been invited to the National Award Ceremony on June 2 at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

This is the fifth time Byron Center Public Schools has had a National winner and the second year in a row more than one student has won from the district.

Their work was chosen from submissions to the program across the country. Students submitted nearly 320,000 original works during the 2016 program across 29 different categories of art and writing.

Past Scholastic winners include Truman Capote, Andy Warhol and Robert Redford, among many other notables. Get more information and a list of winners by state.
