MSMS Scholastic Art & Writing Award Winners!

Mrs. Rogers' BEAM Blog

It is with great pride that we announce this year’s Scholastic Art & Writing award winners!  

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have existed since 1923 and the contest affords students across the country the opportunity to be recognized for their talents.  Notable winners of these prestigious awards include Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, and Robert Redford.  Judges look for originality, technical skill, and development of a personal voice and/or vision.  At the regional level, students are selected  to receive the Gold Key, the Silver Key, or Honorable Mention.  Additionally, each state nominates five selected Gold Key level awards as American Visions & Voices Nominees to be further judged with the hope of achieving the distinction of “Best of Show”.   At the national level, regional Gold Key works will advance to be judged for gold or silver medals (Congrats, Luis and Niti!). 

The 2016 MSMS award winners were selected from…
