Featured Arts: NHS Students Bring Home the Scholastic Art Awards

The Scholastic Art Awards are a national award program sponsored by The Alliance For Young Artists and Writers and Scholastic Educational Magazines, Inc. Locally the Boston Globe Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are presented by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Since 1923, the Awards have recognized and encouraged millions of students, including Truman Capote, Philip Pearlstein, Sylvia Plath, Andy Warhol, John Updike and Stephen King who won when they were teens. In more recent years, famous names such as Myla Goldberg, Paul Chan, Zac Posen, Lena Dunham and Erik Madigan Heck have become alumni of the program.

This year Norwell High School students have proven once again that our program is a national leader in participation and quality of work. Works were judged on originality, technical skill, and emergence of personal vision or voice. The following students have been recognized for excellence in their work:
