Over a dozen Milton students have received 2014 Boston Globe Scholastic Art awards, a record number for the high school. Described as the state championships of art, schools were allowed to submit an unlimited number of senior portfolios and up to 20 individual art pieces per teacher. Submissions were then judged by a panel from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Of the 20 portfolios submitted and 40 individual submissions, three portfolio pieces and 16 individual pieces walked away with a gold, silver, or honorable mention prizes. “This year was really tough.

Not only did a high number of students walk away with recognition, but also more underclassmen won this year than any other year. “To have underclassmen win big awards is huge,” Hughes said. “They stay with the program and see how far they grow.”
