The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards is the nation’s longest running and most prestigious annual art and writing competition among high school students. Jurors look for works that exemplify the awards’ core values: originality, skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. This year, more than 330,000 works of art were submitted, and only 2,000 works won a national award. There are three levels of awards given at the regional level for single works of art: Gold Key, Silver Key, and honorable mention. National medalists are eligible for scholarships of up to $12,500.
“Both of these artists have consistently displayed hard work and dedication throughout their three years in my classroom,” said Webster Thomas High School art teacher Todd Stahl. “Their work is personal and creative, and they are unafraid to bare their souls to the world in their imagery. I could not be more proud of them and their artwork.”
