Two Hopkins High School students have won National Scholastic Art Awards — Michael Semahge and Clair Hoober.

Semahge won a National Gold Key award for his drawing, “5 O’Clock Shadow,” which also was named an American Vision Nominee and was one of five pieces chosen for the “Best of Show” category. Hoober’s painting, “Crashing Waves,” won a National Silver Key.

Also, Leyla Margolis-Brooks, a Minneapolis resident who is a senior at Perpich Arts High School in Golden Valley, received a Silver Key for her painting, “Self Portrait.” Margolis-Brooks received a Gold Key for her portfolio and a Gold Key for an individual work at the state level.

Since 2004, eight Hopkins High School students have received National Scholastic Art Awards.

As part of the honor, the students will attend the National Awards Ceremony in New York City this summer.
