From the Scholastic website: "Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated. Each year, increasing numbers of teens participate in the program, and become a part of our community—young artists and writers, filmmakers and photographers, poets and sculptors, video game artists and science fiction writers, along with countless educators who support and encourage the creative process."

Emma Cooper earned one of two Honorable Mention awards for this drawing.

In addition to the Gold and Silver Key winners, four additional students earned Honorable Mention for their creations. Grace and Cheyenne's works will be on display at Clowes Hall, January 31st through March 18th, as part of the awards exhibition. 

Emma Cooper earned her second Honorable Mention for this piece.

The mission of the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards is to identify students with exceptional artistic and literary talent and present their remarkable work to the world through the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Through the Awards, students receive opportunities for recognition, exhibition, publication, and scholarships. Students across America submitted  more than 330,000 original works last year in 29 different categories of art and writing.

Grace Miller earned an Honorable Mention of her photo of the Monarch butterfly.

PHS students who earned Honorable Mention awards are Emma Cooper (two Honorable Mentions), Grace Miller (in addition to her Gold Key honor), Delaney Fields, Emily Wood, and Nevaeh Parks.

Delaney Fields earned an Honorable Mention for her photograph of a friend.

Congratulations to all the students who submitted their original works to such a prestigious event, and best of luck to Grace as her Gold Key piece moves on to the national competition. 

Emily Wood used PhotoShop to create this image of herself running across the rainbow-hued keys of a piano.

Junior Nevaeh Parks used charcoals and colored pencils to create this still life drawing.
