Day 101 - Congratulations MSMS Artists & Writers - Ms. Phillips - MSMS Art Dept.

Congratulations are extended to this years Scholastic art and writing award winners!
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have existed since 1923 and the contest affords students across the country the opportunity to be recognized for their talents.  Notable winners of these prestigious awards include Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, and Robert Redford.  Judges look for originality, technical skill, and development of a personal voice and/or vision.  At the regional level, students are selected  to receive the Gold Key, the Silver Key, or Honorable Mention.
The 2016 MSMS award winners were selected from more 15,000 ART entries and 2,500 WRITING entries submitted to the Massachusetts Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, where just over 50 judges had to make hard choices based on the 3 criteria of originality, technical skill, and personal vision.
