Cushing Student wins Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Congratulations to Cheng "Cindy" Zeng '21 for receiving three Scholastic Art & Writing awards for her digital painting, “Rust Moonlight.”

In the first round, Cindy received a Gold Key award, a regional award given to the best works submitted to local programs. Nationwide, 2,900 Gold Key works were chosen out of 18,000 submissions. Gold Key award winners are automatically considered for national-level recognition. Cindy is also one of five Massachusetts nominees for an American Visions Award, the highest regional honor given to one artist from each region. Ultimately, Cindy was selected for a National Medal.

Cindy was interviewed by the Boston Globe about her work and her American Visions nomination. Please read the article here.
