Senior Glen Kuznetsov has been awarded a National Scholastic Gold Medal for his ceramic plate triptych. Mr..Kuznetsov will be invited to exhibit his work in New York City at Parsons School of Design at The New School and accept his award at a ceremony at Carnegie Hall later this spring sponsored by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.


Last month, Mr. Kuznetsov received a Gold Key in the statewide Boston Globe Scholastic Art competition. His work was then reviewed by a distinguished panel of artists and educators in NYC to be considered for national recognition. 


His instructor, Mr. Craig Brodt will also receive a medal at the event recognizing him as "an outstanding educator whose dedication, commitment, and guidance are represented by student work selected for national honors." 


This is the 5th national medal won by DYRHS students in the last five years and highlights the collaborative accomplishments and success of our staff and our curriculum.


NCECA (the national Council on Education For the Ceramic Arts) promotes and improves the ceramic

arts through education, community-building, research and creative inspiration, offering programs,

events and publications to support the field and communities in which we work.

NCECA’s broad interests are shaped by artists, students, individual and corporate patrons, gallery

owners, museum curators, and providers of ceramic arts-related products and services.



At this year’s NCECA conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the following DYRHS students were recognized for their outstanding achievement in the Ceramic Arts. The decisions of the jurors were based upon and examination of 1203 entries for this year’s exhibition. As the National K-12 Ceramic Exhibition occurs while the NCECA conference is in session; our students’ work was seen by thousands of visitors from all over the world. NCECA has awarded seniors Glen Kuznetsov and Jon Pecoraro the following:


Glen Kuznetsov:

The Mary Bowron Scholarship Award for $500

The Bailey Pottery Equipment Award for $25

Glen is one of only 16 students chosen for cash awards and certificates of recognition.


The Honorable Mention Award: Glen is one of only 10 high school seniors selected by the jury for recognition.
