Rockville High School Writers are Tops in State

Their 95 awards have put them atop the field.

Thirty-seven Rockville High School students are winners in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards of 2013, presented by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers.  

RHS students received a record-breaking 95 awards this year, the highest number of any participating high school in Connecticut.  In the past five years alone, submissions to this competition have topped 700,000 works, and students have been eligible for more than $25 million in awards and scholarships.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition continues to be the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S. as well as the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.

In past years, the awards have recognized some of America's most celebrated authors and artists including Truman Capote, Sylvia Plath, Bernard Malamud, Joyce Carol Oates, and Andy Warhol. Gold Keys, the highest awards bestowed upon competitors, are now automatically forwarded to the national level of judging.  Students whose works merit a national award are considered for scholarships, publication opportunities, and national exhibition.
