May 7, 2013

By Staff

For the fourth year in a row, Issaquah High School sophomore Hannah Balducci has won an award in the Scholastic Art and Writing competition.

Balducci won the gold medal for Best in Grade in the 2013 contest.

For the past three years, Balducci has won for either photography or writing in the competition. Truman Capote, Sylvia Plath and Andy Warhol have all been recognized. This year, Balducci is a Gold Key winner, the top honor at the regional level. This is a global competition and more than 230,000 works of art and writing were submitted. Only about 15,000 submissions received Gold Keys and only 1,950 medals were awarded.

Balducci has been invited to attend the awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
