Three Milton Academy students have earned national recognition from the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. Jordana da Gloria (Class I), Hannah Pulit (Class II) and Helen Vradelis (Class II) have been named National Gold Award winners at the 2006 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The students’ works were selected from over 200,000 works of art and 50,000 manuscripts submitted by public, private and parochial school students from across the United States, Canada and U.S.-sponsored schools abroad. The national award recipients were chosen by a panel of distinguished artists, writers, arts professionals and educators based on their originality, technique and emergence of a personal voice or vision. Hannah Pulit received three Gold Awards for her short stories, “Starfish,” “Dance Partner” and “Out of the Blue”; Jordana da Gloria received a Gold Award for her poem, “Good Times, Meng”; and Helen Vradelis won the Gold Award for her collection of poems, “Anna,” “From Greta to Marlene, 1924,” “Eve to the Daughters of Future Generations” and “Thicker than Water.”
