Long Beach High School senior Robin Xiao won three regional art distinctions in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards program. He received a Silver Key for his print “Day,” and Honorable Mentions for two other works, “Night” and “Sacred Place.”

This past fall, Robin earned a Merit Award in the Visual Arts category of the Long Island Arts Alliance’s Scholar Artist Awards Program. Last year, his work was showcased in the “Advanced Visions 16: High School Artists of Excellence Exhibition” at LIU Post and his photography has been selected for the Long Island Arts Council Show in Freeport.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. According to the organization, students across the nation submitted nearly 320,000 works of art and writing in 2020. Submissions are judged based on originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
