Harriton artists excel in 2019 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Harriton High School art students were recently well-represented in the 2019 Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards as the award-winning Rams brought home a total of 53 accolades across a variety of mediums and categories, including 17 Gold Keys, 15 Silver Keys and 21 Honorable Mentions.

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 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 be forwarded on to New York City to compete in the national level Scholastic Art competition where they will be judged by a prestigious panel of artists to determine if they will be one of 1000 works selected for a national level award. Congratulations to all of Harriton's honorees!
