Integrated Arts & Technology Students Honored in Two Competitions
Posted 01/30/2017 03:39PM

Students in the Integrated Arts & Technology Department were honored recently for their fine work in recent regional competition sponsored by the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards and recent state competition sponsored by the Journalism Education Association.

IA&T Department Chair Candace Thompson announced that Prep artists in fashion, art, art & graphics and architecture received a total of 114 awards during regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition, including 29 Gold Keys (for works that will now move on to national competition), 39 Silver Keys and 46 Honorable Mentions. The 114 awards is also a new school record, surpassing the 93 awards garnered in regional competition last year at this time.

In addition, out of the five nominations from the region for the prestigious American Visions Medal, Prep students received two of them. The American Visions Medal is the highest regional honor bestowed in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

IA&T teacher and Journalism Adviser Matt Rasgorshek also announced that Prep student journalists received excellent and superior ratings in JEA state competition. Specifically, Creighton Prep TV was honored with an excellent rating for their first broadcast “CPTV – Show 1” that profiled a Prep powerlifter and included a preview of the varsity basketball season. Senior Liam Keating’s editorial on school spirit in the November 3, 2016 Jay Journal newspaper also received an excellent rating, and the sports photography work here and here of junior Jeff Dong during varsity football season received a superior rating as well.

Congratulations to all the Prep artists and journalists honored by these two organizations and to their Prep teachers Jeremy Caniglia ’88, Sarah Godfrey, Matt Rasgorshek and Candace Thompson.
