Program literature notes that "Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal voice or vision." Approximately 10% of submissions are selected by these jurors for each of the Gold Key and Silver Key categories.

Congratulations to HHS Award Winners:
GK=Gold Key,SK=Silver Key,HM=Honorable Mention; A=Art;  W=Writing

Erin Bishop SKW, two poems:

Eternal

 

Shall you not only be

A prayer that I make every night

But you shall be my dreams

An eternity of slavery to your heart

Seemed impossible at first

But you showed me thy goodwill

And I fell into a loss of words.

 

Shall you be my eternal flame

That burns forever in my soul

Shall you burn my sorrow and

Leave me your shining light

At first my love was blinded

Until I saw your eyes.

 

 

 

 

Tears

 

Drip...

Drip...

Falling...

Never stopping.

I don't know why

You are falling?

I must be strong.

I must be brave.

Knowing that

Why do they fall?

I want to smile

But you won't

let me.

That salt on my tongue

So strong.

You finally stop falling.

How annoying are tears.

About the Awards:

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have an impressive legacy dating back to 1923 and a noteworthy roster of past winners including Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates.

The Awards are an important opportunity for students to be recognized for their creative talents. Each year, the Alliance partners with more than 100 visual and literary-arts focused organizations across the country to bring The Awards to local communities. Teens in grades 7 through 12 can apply in 28 categories of art and writing for the chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited or published.

Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.

To date, the Awards have encouraged over 13 million students, recognized more than 9 million young artists and writers, and made available more than $25 million in awards and scholarships. They continue to be the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.
