It's also the largest source of scholarships for creative teens.
We are thrilled to announce that 9 Léman Upper School students' works were recognized this year and 22 pieces of artwork were selected as award winners. Of these, nine works received the highest honor of "Gold Key."  Gold Key winners receive the honor of exhibiting their work in the Metropolitan Museum of Art!
