Watkins Glen High School Senior Ashlyn Karius won The Gold American Visions Medal in the 2019 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, a national art and writing competition, for her original drawing, The All Seeing Hands.

Karius’ drawing was one of 340,000 works of art and writing that were submitted to this year’s awards, which were judged by leaders in visual and literary arts for excellence in originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.

Receiving this National Medal places Karius within the top one percent of all submissions.

Karius was previously honored at the annual Scholastic Art Awards at the Arnot Art Museum in Elmira.
