Scholastic Art and Writing Awards

Nineteen Bishop’s students earned recognition in the West Region-at-Large in this nearly century-old program for creative teens. Seven will have their work move on for adjudication at the national level.

Students in grades 7-12 can submit art and writing in a total of 28 different categories; the regional event began taking submissions in Sept. in order to meet the Dec. 8 deadline. States in the west region range from Colorado to Hawaii.
For the regional awards, “All entries are considered for Gold Key, Silver Key, Honorable Mention, American Visions Nominee, and American Voices Nominee Awards. These are presented to students along with celebration ceremonies and exhibitions in each region,” according to the organization’s website. This year’s regional ceremony will be a virtual live stream on Thursday, March 4. Gold Key winners will receive a Gold Key pin (by mail this year), and their work will be sent on to the review process for national awards. 
The website notes, “Students’ entries are blindly adjudicated by some of the foremost leaders in the visual and literary arts. Jurors look for works that exemplify the Awards’ core values: originality, technical skill and the emergence of personal voice or vision.”
Faculty whose students earned recognition include English department members Amy Allen, Clara Boyle, Adam Davis, Hilary Kaplan, Mark Radley and Laine Remignanti; and Visual Arts department members Joe Allen and Elizabeth Wepsic.
We congratulate these Bishop’s students:
