Students may win either a Gold Key, a Silver Key or an Honorable Mention at the regional level. According to the museum, between 20 and 25 percent of the submissions garnered awards.

Those works receiving a Gold Key will now be juried for National Awards which will be presented at Carnegie Hall in May. The national awards will be announced in March.

On March 16, Millburn High School will honor its students who received all levels of awards, in both art and writing, during an evening award ceremony and exhibit in the auditorium of the high school. The winners in the writing categories have not yet been announced. Millburn’s AP Art teacher is Kathleen Harte-Gilsenan.
