MILLBURN, NJ - Seven Millburn Township students have won National Awards in the 2014 Scholastic Art and Writing Competition. The students will be honored in June at a ceremony in Carnegie Hall that highlights the creative achievements of the most select group of talented students in grades 7-12 nationwide.

The Scholastic Art and Writing Competition is the longest running, most prestigious competition for creative youth in the United States. The jury process begins at the regional level and only a fraction of the thousands of works submitted ever makes it to the National Award level.

Millburn eighth grader Ryan Sunada-Wong has earned his second National Scholastic Award. Last year Ryan won a National Silver Medal and "Best in Grade" for a comic strip he created. This year another of Ryan's hand-drawn comic strips has earned him a National Silver Medal. The other Millburn students winning National Scholastic Awards this year include Anna Schott (Silver Medal-Art-Fashion), Satyen Gupta (Silver Medal-Art-Photography), Darren Ting (Silver Medal-Art-Photography), April Blum (Silver Medal-Art-Photography), Josh Kimelman (Silver Medal-Writing-Senior Portfolio) and Sara Klausner (Silver Medal-Writing-Poetry)
