Waterford’s Middle and Upper School students entered this year’s annual Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Competition and earned high accolades with a total of 85 regional awards in both visual arts and creative writing.
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 since 1923. An increasing numbers of teens participate in the program and become a part of this 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.
Waterford’s talented students show passion and elevated standards in the work they submitted this year. The awards listed below are for our Western Region, which includes Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Washington, and parts of California. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards—the oldest and most prestigious program of its kind in the country—selects winning work for Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention awards. All Gold Key winners advance to the National competition; those results will be announced in mid-March. Seniors whose portfolios win the top National award receive a $10,000 scholarship.
