WESTFALL - Delaware Valley High School participates annually in the Regional Scholastic Art Awards Competition held at Marywood University. Sponsored by The Scranton Times, this competition brings in participation from junior and senior high school students in four area counties of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Over 1,100 pieces are submitted to the competition. Entries were selected by art teachers as the best work by their students and submitted for regional judging. The final decision is made by a panel of judges consisting of art educators and art professionals who select the best 200 works. All works in the show earn a Certificate of Merit. Entries earning a silver or gold key award signify that they are the stronger pieces in the show. This year twenty-one Certificates of Merit, eleven Silver keys and five Gold Keys came from Delaware Valley students. Gold key winners will advance to New York City for national award consideration. Catie Bulmer, Brigette Indelicato, Conor Moran, Cassandra Griger, and Heather McGinley will represent the school as the gold key winners.
