Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated. Each year, increasing numbers of teens participate in the program, and become a part of our community—young artists and writers, filmmakers and photographers, poets and sculptors, video game artists and science fiction writers, along with countless educators who support and encourage the creative process. Scholastic alumni include artists, actors, designers, and writers such as Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Robert Redford, Zac Posen, and John Lithgow.

Congratulations to our students for these prestigious awards. Mrs. Ardner and Ms. Gleinser are extremely proud of their talent, dedication, and perseverance.
