Scholastic Art Awards

Scholastic Art Awards

Since 1923, Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized and encouraged millions of creative teens, from ages 13 through 18, through opportunities for acknowledgement, exhibition, publication and scholarships. Harris County Department of Education serves as the regional sponsor of this prestigious national program and hosts yearly judging and awards ceremonies for thousands of art and writing entries submitted by Harris County teens.

Each fall, entries are judged by panels of highly-qualified professionals who select Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention recipients. Gold Key winners go on to compete at the national level. More than 1,500 students receive national awards each year. Past winners include Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates.

Congratulations to Klein ISD Scholastic art award recipients for 2019. One hundred and eighty six student artists, from ages 13 through 18, earned regional Scholastic recognition, a 38% increase in award recipients over 2018. Forty-one KISD artists received Gold Key recognition. Their artwork will go on to compete in the national competition. Forty-four students were awarded Silver Key and 101 students earned Honorable Mention. Proud of our students and their teachers as they further the district vision through cultivating talent!
