“I was very proud of our school. The feeling was similar to watching the Oscars, watching a movie sweep over and a team being very proud,” Bubp said. According to Bubp, many of her students were winners in the competition. “This year, especially, we were very well represented,” she said.

Senior Alex Mikev was an American Vision Nominee who also won 4 Gold Key awards. “I was really honored to be a nominee. It’s given to one to five people in the whole competition in Central and Southern Indiana. My artwork also came in best in grade award of artwork that was submitted,” he said. According to Mikev, all gold key drawings will be submitted again to the national competition to be judged again.

“I thought my artwork was strong but I didn’t think it would win overall, with the sheer pool of talent,” Mikev said.
