2012 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards



Congratulations to Ms. Amy Weber and her Graphic Design Program!  Her students placed well in the 2012 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. See below for details.

About Scholastic Art and Writing Awards:

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards have an impressive legacy dating back to 1923 and a noteworthy roster of past winners including Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates.

The Awards are an important opportunity for students to be recognized for their creative talents. Teens can apply in 28 categories of art and writing for the chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited or published.

Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill and the emergence of personal voice or vision.

To date the Awards have encouraged over 13 million students, recognized more than 9 million young artists and writers, and made available more than $25 million in awards and scholarships. They continue to be the longest-running most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the US, and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.
