Harriton Students Honored in Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Harriton High School art students were well-represented in the 2021 Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards as this year's award-winning Rams brought home a total of 40 accolades across an array of categories and mediums, including six Gold Keys, 13 Silver Keys and 21 Honorable Mentions.

Regional Scholastic Awards include the following levels of recognition:

  • GOLD KEY - The very best works submitted to local programs. Gold Key works are automatically considered for national–level recognition.
  • SILVER KEY - Stand-out works submitted to local programs that demonstrate exceptional ability.
  • HONORABLE MENTION - Accomplished works submitted to local programs showing great skill and potential.

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have served as an annual competition highlighting the talents of students in grades seven through twelve. The contest also acts as a forum to discover and nurture future leaders in the art and writing fields, as previous winners include such renowned artists as Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Stephen King, Myla Goldberg and Richard Linklater.

For students, the contest is an incredible opportunity to show off their talents at the regional and potentially national levels. Students can submit work to 28 different categories, including Architecture, Comic Art, Ceramics and Glass, Digital Art, Drawing, Fashion and more. Works are judged on originality, technical skill and emergence of personal vision or voice.

Gold Key winning artworks will now advance to the country-wide Scholastic Art competition where they will be judged by a prestigious panel of artists to determine if they will be one of 1,000 works selected for a national-level award. Congratulations to all of Harriton's honorees!
