The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is a national art and writing competition with regional shows held in each state. If a student has their work selected they are awarded one of three awards: Honorable Mention, Silver Key Award, or Gold Key Award. After the regional show has concluded the Gold Key Award pieces are automatically selected to be juried for the National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards that are held in Washington, D.C. over the summer.
Last year one of Topeka West's photography students was awarded a Gold Key at the national level!!
Please join me in congratulating these students on their amazing accomplishment! This is a very selective competition showcasing the best of art from high schools in the state of Kansas. All of our students should be very proud!!
