2019 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Eighteen students – including one eighth-grader – were honored in the regional competition, with eight students receiving Gold Key awards, giving their work the opportunity to move on to consideration for national honors.
 
Presented by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, these awards “identify students with exceptional artistic and literary talent,” according to the mission statement on the Scholastic website. In addition, the awards offer “opportunities for recognition, exhibition, publication and scholarships.” Our 18 students were among scores of students across the U.S. who submitted nearly 350,000 original works in 29 different categories of art and writing. The students’ submissions were “blindly adjudicated by some of the foremost leaders in the visual and literary arts.”
 
Judging for the Gold Key recipients will take place in New York City; national honors include Gold and Siver medals and Special Achievement awards. National Medalists will be announced on March 13, so we’ll keep you posted on the outcome for our Gold Key honorees!
