Grandview Art Students are Winners!
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the nation's longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades 7–12. This prestigious national program has been an annual event in Colorado for the past 69 years. The History Colorado Center will serve as the host for our region.
In 2017, Colorado had over 6,000 pierces of art from approximately 2,200 students in the program. Submissions are adjudicated and selected works will go on display at the History Colorado Center in the spring of 2018. Judges look for work that best exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. Students receiving Gold Keys, Silver Keys, Honorable Mentions, American Visions & Voices Nominations are celebrated at the exhibition at the History Colorado Center and spring awards ceremony.
Gold Key works are judged nationally by an impressive panel of creative–industry experts. National Medalists will be recognized at the national ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City in June 2018.
