We are proud to announce this year's recipients of the 2023 Scholastic Art and Writing Competition.

This year, Kings High School students received 8 Gold Keys, 8 Silver Keys, and 22 Honorable Mentions.

Entries are judged without knowledge of the student’s gender, age, ethnicity, or hometown by some of the foremost leaders in the visual and literary arts. Jurors look for originality, technical skills, and the emergence of personal vision or voice.

We wish the best of luck to our Gold Key winners, Alex Schmidt, Brennan Abbott, Arianna Borrego, Annika Kleinhenz, Kiera McCoy, Hayden Mitchell, Nora Spelic, and Claudia Witter, as their work continues on to the national competition. Only 7-10% of all regional submissions are recognized with Gold Key Awards.

KHS Silver Key winners are Caraline Bode, Eleanor Flinders, Averi Hacker, Katherine Hagen, Jack Pennington, Charlotte Roe, Claudia Witter, and Isabel York.

Honorable Mentions are Alex Schmidt (2 Honorable Mentions), Gabe Charles, Liam Dooley, Brennan Abbott, Mars Back, Drew Bloomfield, Ariya Dharni, Eleanor Flinders, Drew Froah, Averi Hacker, Annika Kleinhenz, Bella Land, Ella Linahan (2 Honorable Mentions), Joy Ma, Kiera McCoy, Bridget Ramirez, Bekah Reed, (2 Honorable Mentions), Nora Spelic, and Reece Wagner.

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.
