Nineteen Laurel students honored in the 2020 Scholastic Art & Writing Competition

The 2020 winners of the Scholastic Art & Writing Competition were recently named by the Cleveland Institute of Art and 19 Laurel students received 22 honors in the visual arts and writing categories.
Each year, the Alliance partners with more than 100 visual arts and literary arts organizations across the country to bring the Scholastic Awards to local communities. Open to students in Grades 7-12, applicants can submit in 29 different categories of art and writing.
Students submitted more than 340,000 works of art and writing in this year’s competition. Award-winning work best exemplifies originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. Students receiving Gold Keys, Silver Keys, Honorable Mentions, or American Visions & Voices Nominations are celebrated within their communities through local exhibitions and ceremonies. Gold Key works are then judged nationally by an impressive panel of creative–industry experts to receive National Medals.
