The week before winter break begins calls for cramming in last minute assignments. Students and teachers alike are abuzz, trying to finish up every last task before the blessed, two weeks of relaxation. There are many phrases you may hear if you stick around Oxbridge: “Zisk quiz,” “college applications,” “can’t find my ugly Christmas sweater…” However, one particular phrase stood out—“Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.”

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards have been recognizing talent from teens in grades seven through twelve across America. Students can submit work into 29 different categories of art and writing, ranging from novel writing to sculpture. Last year, more than 320,000 works were submitted.

With the help of Oxbridge’s Art and English departments, more than 100 Oxbridge students submitted work to Scholastic this year. In total, over 190 pieces from Oxbridge had the potential to win awards in the regional competition. Regional rankings are as follows: Honorable Mention, Silver Key, and Gold Key, with Gold Key winners advancing to the national competition.

The winners of the art awards were recently announced. Oxbridge students were very successful, winning forty-three honorable mentions, fourteen silver key awards, and eight gold key awards! Select honorable mention works will be displayed at the Eg2 Gallery, while silver and gold key works will be displayed at the Armory Art Center. Gold key works will also be judged nationally in New York, where they will be contenders for additional awards and scholarships. Further information on the art exhibitions will be listed below. Congratulations to all of the winners!
