Creighton Prep Fine Arts and Design Technology student artists had an outstanding year in the regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition with 79 awards, including 31 Gold Keys, which breaks last year's school record of 29, and three senior portfolios that will compete for a $10,000 scholarship at the national level, also a school record.

Senior Caleb Myers was also one of only five students in the state of Nebraska nominated for an American Visions Medal, the highest regional honor in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Caleb and others awarded Gold Keys will have their works moved to national competition, and Prep students also earned an impressive 24 Silver Keys and 23 Honorable Mentions.

A ceremony to honor the students will be held on Saturday, February 24 in the auditorium at the Omaha Public Schools Teacher Administrative Center.
