Klein Oak High School Students Bring Home 22 Regional Scholastic Art Awards

Each year, Houston area schools and districts submit student artwork and writing to compete in The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, sponsored by the Harris County Department of Education.

In the fall, entries are judged by panels of highly-qualified professionals who select Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention recipients for the regional competition. Gold Key winners go on to compete at the national level.
