This year some of our high schoolers submitted their work to the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards in hopes of gaining recognition for their hard work. The Scholastic Awards are given out to students in grades 7-12 who demonstrate excellence in one of 29 art and writing categories. Students can win regional and national awards depending on their area of submission. Thousands of students all over the U.S. submit to the competition, and this year Grace had three winners!
