Park Students Honored in 2022 Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Category:

Five Park students were honored in the 2022 Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, receiving a total of eight awards and honorable mentions in both art and writing. Founded in 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the nation’s longest-running, most prestigious educational initiative supporting student achievement in the visual and literary arts. The program has an impressive legacy of being the first to acknowledge creative talent and is today’s largest source of scholarships for creative teens. 

This year, 1,300 teens from Baltimore and the surrounding region submitted 3,000 works of visual and literary art. All works are blindly judged by local visual artists, novelists, poets, playwrights, educators, and editors. Each piece is judged based on originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice. Award recipients receive Gold Key, Silver Key, or Honorable Mention. 

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards recognize student achievement in the visual and literary arts in 28 categories, including architecture, painting, flash fiction, poetry, printmaking, fashion design, Expanded Projects, and more. To learn more about the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards and to read the full rules, visit: https://www.artandwriting.org/awards/how-to-enter/
