College Preparatory School for Girls Grades 3-12

26 Upper School Artists Earn Total of 40 Scholastic Art Awards

The 2019 Scholastic Art Awards recognized 26 Holton student artists for their work in painting, drawing, photography, and ceramics. These students earned a total of 40 awards, including 11 Gold Key Awards, which now advance to national judging.

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards "have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of the nation's youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated." They are presented annually by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a nonprofit whose mission is to spotlight students with "exceptional artistic and literary talent." In addition to earning recognition, top award recipients are eligible for scholarships. Last year, more than 350,000 works were submitted to this prestigious competition; fewer than 3,000 receive national honors.

We congratulate all our awardees, as well as all students who entered, and their talented, dedicated teachers!

A full list of awardees appears below.
