Sixty-three Harpeth Hall students were recognized by the regional Scholastic Art Awards and Writing Awards, announced in late January. Five students were recognized in both categories. In total, Harpeth Hall students won 98 awards.

Started in 1923, the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards competition offers students in grades 7-12 (ages 13 and up) a chance to submit an unlimited number of their creative works for judging at the regional and national levels. Regional winners are awarded honorable mentions, silver keys, and gold keys, while national winners receive honorable mentions, silver medals, and gold medals. 

In the art category, participants can choose from 17 different categories, with an eleventh portfolio option available to graduating seniors. These categories range from Comic Art, to Film & Animation, to Painting, and Photography, plus many other creative medium.

In writing, participants can choose from ten different categories, with an eleventh portfolio option available to graduating seniors. These categories range from creative nonfiction in critical essays and journalism pieces, to short story and novel writing, which supply an outlet for works of fiction. While each category has a word count restriction, there are no content requirements past making sure each piece is in its appropriate category.

In 2019, students submitted nearly 340,000 works of art and writing to Scholastic Awards. 

We are very proud of our artists and writers who created and submitted their personal works. Congratulations!

The school plans to recognize these students at an all-school assembly on March 3. The national results of the 2020 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards will be announced on their website in March. https://www.artandwriting.org
