National Medalist News-A Newsletter for National Medalists in the 2016 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
CONGRATULATIONS NATIONAL MEDALISTS!
We wanted to take a moment to put your amazing accomplishment into context.
This fall and winter, students across the country and from places abroad submitted nearly 320,000 works of art and writing to the 2016 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Nearly 18,000 works earned regional Gold Keys and advanced to NYC for national adjudication. Of those Gold Key works, just 2,400 received National Medals! YOUR work is one of the top 1% of art and writing submitted to the 2016 Scholastic Awards! Thank you again for sharing your work with us this year! We couldn't be happier to have the chance to show the world what you can do!
The National Ceremony takes place at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, June 2, at 6:00 pm ET.
