Many Greenhill photography students have won photography awards over the last couple of weeks.

The National YoungArts Foundation identifies and nurtures the most accomplished young artists in the visual, literary, design and performing arts and assists them at critical junctures in their educational and professional development.

YoungArts will recognize 700 of the nation’s most promising young artists in the visual, literary, design and performing arts. Selected from thousands of applications and representing artists from all across the US, YoungArts winners gain access to financial, professional and artistic development opportunities throughout the course of their careers.

Senior Natalie Park has been recognizes as a Merit award winner. She will partake in a week of performances, master classes and exhibitions in Miami in February and is now considered a YoungArts alumnus.

Since 2009, Greenhill Photography has had incredible success in this competition. Students have won seven Merit Awards, three Honorable Mention Awards and five Finalists.

The Drexel HS Photography Contest is a national contest that is hosted yearly. Thousands of images were submitted with a total of 170 chosen to exhibit at Drexel University.
