The Lincoln High School visual arts department is celebrating some fantastic recent successes.

Thirteen Lincoln students recently entered the Scholastic Art and Writing contest for 2019, and 12 of them received awards, including seven honorable mentions (accomplished works submitted to local programs showing great skill and potential), two Silver Key Awards (Stand-out works submitted to local programs that demonstrate exceptional ability), four Gold Key Awards (the very best works submitted to local programs. Gold Key works are automatically considered for national-lever recognition) and the school also earned a Gold Key Portfolio.
