Ten Laurel students received 26 honors in the 2021 Scholastic Art & Writing Competition
Each year the Cleveland Institute of Art hosts the Scholastic Art & Writing Competition that recognizes creative achievement in area 7-12 grade students. Applicants can submit in 28 different categories of art and writing.
Students submitted more than 320,000 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. Congratulations to the following Laurel students who were recognized in the regional competition:
