Princeton, NJ - Art students at The Hun School of Princeton were recently recognized with Scholastic Art Awards. The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards program is the nation's longest running and most prestigious scholarship and recognition initiative for creative teens in grades 7 through 12. Luminaries who received the awards as youngsters include Richard Avedon, Truman Capote, Stephen King, Sylvia Plath, Robert Redford, and Andy Warhol.


The Hun School had six New Jersey regional winners who were announced last month. They are: 


Rebecca Ning '17, Belle Meade, NJ. Gold Key; architecture

Sofia Weingarten '20, Lawrenceville, NJ. Silver Key, photography

Stanley Bi '18, Dalian, China. Silver Key, photography

Rachel Huffaker '18, Drexel Hill, PA. Silver Key and an Honorable Mention, photography

Sophia Chung '17, Seoul, S. Korea. Two Honorable Mentions, photography

Erika Lee '20, Jakarta, Indonesia. Honorable Mention, painting 


Gold Key regional winners go on to compete for national awards and honors, which are announced in March. They include scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. Also in March, Gold Key winners' art will be exhibited at the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, New Jersey.


Hun student Rachel Huffaker was also selected as one of 100 students, out of 13,000, to be featured in Photographers Forum magazine's Best High School Photographers.  


"To be an artist involves risk taking, not just in searching for and finding personal expression but in the willingness to share it with the world," said Hun School Visual Arts Department Chair Allan Arp. "Our students took a chance participating in this competition and they were rewarded for it!  I'm very proud of their accomplishments."
