Riverdale junior wins National Scholastic art award

Posted on April 5, 2017

After winning a regional gold key award, junior Sam Hinerfeld has gone on to earn a national silver medal in the 2017 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Creative professionals selected his painting, “Not the Rapper,” as being among the most accomplished in the nation.

This year, more than 330,000 works of art and writing were submitted, yet less than 1 percent were recognized at the national level.

Congratulations, Sam, on this artistic achievement.
