Cole Goco and other Arlington students win comic art awards UPDATED

This just came in from Cole's PR staff (wink, aka Mom, wink):

Cole Goco was just awarded a national gold medal for Comic Art from the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.  In Arlington, 3 students got national medals this year in the category of Comic Art.  Cole has received a national medal 4 years in a row, but to my knowledge this is the first year there has been more than one medalist in Arlington in the Comic Art category (so that's must mean comic art is thriving here!)  Also, all the work is on display right now at the central library through March 28.  Cole's (a size-reduced version) is on the first floor near the children's section, Kate Felsenheld's is on the 2nd floor facing the quiet room, and I'm not sure where the 3rd one is.

Winners were:

Gold medal:
H-B Woodlawn 10th grader Cole Goco: Planets (Comic Art)

Silver medal:
Washington-Lee High School senior Kate Felsenheld: So You Wanna Be a Punk (Comic Art)
Swanson Middle School 8th grader Natalie Moreno: August (Comic Art)

More details are here -

Now with Cole's cartoon.
