Misha McCullagh has won 1st prize in the Royal Scottish Academy Schools art award.

 

A Linlithgow Academy art student has won first prize in a prestigious competition.

Misha McCullagh, an S6 pupil, won £250 in the senior category at the Royal Scottish Academy Schools annual art awards.

The competition, sponsored by Baillie Gifford, is open to all secondary schools in Scotland.

It has been running for 26 years and always attracts a large number of entries.

Organised by the Friends of the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA), the art award is the only competition open to senior pupils and has considerable prestige with teachers who value the exciting opportunity it provides for Scottish pupils studying art and design.

In junior, intermediate and senior categories, prizes of £250 go to both the winner and their school art department.

A spokesman for the Academy said: “We are delighted with Misha’s achievement, which was all the more special since her winning painting was of her grandmother.”

The school also won £250 as part of the overall prize.
