CCES Takes Home Record Number of Scholastic Art & Writing Awards
by Jamie Bryant, Director of Strategic Marketing & Communications
Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth— young artists and writers, filmmakers and photographers, poets and sculptors, video game artists and science fiction writers— and provided opportunities for creative students to be celebrated.
Last year, a record-breaking 350,000+ works were submitted for adjudication at the regional level, with more than 1,900 public, private and home-schooled students receiving national recognition. CCES competes in the Southeast Region-at-Large, which extends from Washington, DC to the Caribbean. CCES students earned more medals this year than any other year before, including 6 Gold Keys,4 Silver Keys, and 4 Honorable Mentions. Our Gold Key winners will advance to the National Contest with the winners recognized in New York City in March.
