13 Bulldog art students have received recognition in the 2018 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, presented by the Northeast Florida Art Education Association. Their art work was recognized by a panel of creative professional from around the area as the most outstand work submitted by their peers this year. This year they had one of their largest number of submissions, and our students were recognized from a pool of over 2800 entries!

In the 94-year history of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, some of America's most celebrated artists have been recognized while they were teenagers, including: Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon, Idelle Weber, Ken Burns, Paul Chan, and Kay WalkingStick. We are very proud of the achievement and recognition of our young artists.

Five students were recognized for their art work by receiving Gold Key awards for their submissions. This honor signifies that their artwork was recognized and selected to go on to nationals. We also had 4 Silver Key Awards and 4 Honorable Mentions.

All of our artists will be recognized this weekend in Jacksonville at the 2018 Northeast Florida Scholastic Art Awards & Exhibitions.
