Boston Globe Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Each year the Boston Globe presents the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards to outstanding middle and high school artists across the state. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards has an impressive legacy dating back to 1923. Over the years, the Awards have grown to become the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the nation’s largest source of scholarships for creative young artists and writers. A noteworthy roster of past winners includes Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen King, John Updike, and many more. [Source:]

This year, fifty-seven students from Chenery Middle School and Belmont High School made submissions and were honored by the Boston Globe Scholastic Art Awards. Many of these submissions will move on to be considered for regional and national awards in the coming weeks and months.

Congratulations to all of these young artists, and thanks to their teachers, Kat Byrnes, Mark Milowsky and Andrew Roy for all of their work assisting with these submissions.
