Amir Khadar, a senior at Fridley High School, has again placed high in fine arts competition; this time on the national level.

Khadar received a record-setting six national awards from the national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. His winning pieces are:

  •  Black Barbie Beauty Project. Gold Medal, Digital Art
  •  Unsolicited Advice to a Gay Boy in the Back of a Classroom Who Can’t Say No. Silver Medal, American Voices Medal Poetry
  •  WitchCraft. Gold Medal, Poetry
  •  Safety Pin Solution. Silver Medal, Editorial Cartoon
  •  That is Not My Job. Gold Medal, Editorial Cartoon
  •  Trump’s Presidential Cabinet. Gold Medal, Editorial Cartoon

Out of the over 330,000 works submitted, less than one percent are recognized at the national level. The awards include 29 categories, such as poetry, photography, sculpture, humor, editorial cartoons, and video game design. Alumni of the prestigious awards include Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Sylvia Plath, Stephen King, Richard Linklater, Zac Posen and Lena Dunham.

With the national recognition, Khadar has been invited to the National Ceremony on June 8 at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
