Park Students Honored in 2020 Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards


Eight Park students were honored in the 2020 Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, receiving a total of 13 awards and honorable mentions in both art and writing. Presented by the Alliance for young Artists & Writers, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program in the country for creative teens. Since 1923, the Awards have recognized the vision and ingenuity of our nation’s youth. Students across the country submitted 340,000 works of art and writing to the Scholastic Awards in 29 categories last year. Panelists consider works that best exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.

Several Park students received multiple awards; seniors Ariel Hong and Naomi Carpenter, and junior Marie Kyung. All Gold Key works will be considered for national-level recognition.

Congratulations to all of Park’s Scholastic honorees!
