Scholastics Art & Writing competition names 7 award winners from Valor Christian

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition initiative for creative teens, are now accepting submissions from students across the country in grades 7–12. For 93 years, the Awards, presented by the nonprofit Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, have identified the early promise of some of our nation’s most accomplished visionaries and encouraged young artists and writers to pursue a variety of creative career paths and endeavors. In the 2015 program year, a record-breaking 300,000+ works were submitted for adjudication at the regional level, with more than 1,900 public, private and home-schooled students receiving national recognition.
