We are proud to announce this year's Kings High School Award Recipients of the Scholastic Art and Writing Competition. This year, Kings High School students represent with 1 Portfolio by Urte Kireliuete, 3 Gold Keys, 10 Silver Keys, and 15 Honorable Mentions.
Over 5,000 pieces of art were submitted for judging. Works were judged on originality, technical skills, and emergence of personal vision or voice. We wish the best of luck to our Gold Key winners, as their work continues on to the national competition.
The students are under the supervision of KHS teachers, Angie Guilfoyle, Kelly Shields, Cassandra Barnes, Carrie Cooke, and Stacy Hoffert.
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is 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.
