Students’ artwork recognized with Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

on April 30, 2018

The artwork of 18 Warwick Valley students was recognized with Gold and Silver Keys by the 2018 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. Students in grades 7-12 submitted artwork to be considered for the regional Gold Key or Silver Key awards. One student was recognized with a National Silver Medal.

The mission of Alliance for Young Artists & Writers is to identify students with exceptional artistic and literary talent and present their remarkable work to the world through the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Each year, the Alliance partners with more than 100 visual arts and literary arts organizations across the country to bring the Scholastic Awards to local communities.

In 2018, students submitted nearly 350,000 works of art and writing to the Scholastic Awards. Nationally, less than 1 percent of submissions were awarded a Gold or Silver Key. Submissions are juried by some of the foremost leaders in the visual and literary arts.

Congratulations to all Warwick Valley Middle and High School award recipients and participants.
