This month, South Pasadena High School (SPHS) students earned 60 Los Angeles regional awards in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards Competition. The Awards recognize student achievement in the visual and literary arts in 28 categories, including architecture, painting, flash fiction, poetry, printmaking, fashion design, expanded projects, and more.
SPHS regional winners earning Honorable Mention, Silver Key, and Gold Key Awards are listed here along with their supervising teachers and a link to examples of Gold Key winning artwork.
The awards offer opportunities for creative teens to earn recognition, exhibition, publication and scholarships. Each work of art and writing is blindly adjudicated, first locally through the more than 100 affiliates of the Alliance, and then nationally by panels comprised of renowned artists, authors, educators and industry experts. Works are judged on originality, technical skill, and emergence of personal vision or voice.
The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers will honor the 2022 regional winners during a virtual ceremony live on Thursday, March 10, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. ET. Register here if you would like to view the celebration.
Gold Key Award winners will go on to the National Competition in New York City, later this spring.
