Upper School Students Honored with 13 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Nine Upper School students were honored with Scholastic Art & Writing Gold Key Awards at the regional level.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades 7–12. For this award year, students submitted more than 350,000 works of art and writing in 29 categories. Approximately 90,000 works are recognized at the regional level.

The Gold Key works will now be judged nationally by a panel of creative-industry experts to receive National Medals. Recipients of a National Medal will be announced in March and honored at a ceremony in New York City.
