Forty- three RCDS students have been recognized by the 2017 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, which were established in 1923 by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers to recognize “the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation's youth.” A jury of leaders in the visual and literary arts blindly judges student submissions on the basis of the Awards' core values: originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. Student talent and skill are acknowledged by a Gold Key Award (top honor), Silver Key Award, or Honorable Mention. Visit artandwriting.org/about-us/ for more information on the awards.
