Shaler Area High School student wins national art award
Shaler Area High School senior Kelly Cross is being recognized for her artistic talent at the national level.

Kelly Cross won a National Medal in the 2018 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, and was awarded Silver Key for her artwork depicting a peacock.

Kelly’s work was selected by creative professionals as the most accomplished in the nation. This year, nearly 350,000 works of art and writing were submitted. Less than 1 percent were recognized at the national level. As one of the students receiving a top award, Kelly has been invited to attend a ceremony at the world-famous Carnegie Hall on June 7 and to participate in showcase events at Parsons School for Design at The New School and Pratt Institute’s Pratt Manhattan Gallery in New York City.
Kelly’s artwork advanced for adjudication at the national level after receiving the Gold Key in the competition’s Northeast Regionals. Close to 19,600 works earned regional Gold Keys and advanced to national adjudication in New York City.
