Scholastic Arts Award Winners 2017
Students across Colorado submitted over 5,500 original works during our 2016-2017 program year. Thank you to all our young artists and teachers who participated in this years program. All of you who contributed are an integral part of the creative community and we thank you for your participation, creativity, enthusiasm and passion.
The Scholastics Art Awards have a long history.
“…to give those high school students who demonstrate superior talent and achievement in things of the spirit and of the mind at least a fraction of the honors and rewards accorded to their athletic classmates for demonstrating their bodily skills.” –Maurice R. Robinson, Founder
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.
Thank You, MRHS Visual Arts Department
