4/3/2018, 2:23 p.m.

Twenty-nine student artists from Plainfield Central, South and East high schools won 39 regional awards in the prestigious 2018 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards allows 7th through 12th grade students nationwide to submit works of art or writing for the chance to win scholarships and have their work published or exhibited by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers.

The contest is sponsored by the Scholastic book company. Entries are judged by renowned artists and writers. More than nine million student writers and artists have been recognized since 1923.

Past winners include such art and literary luminaries as Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen King and John Updike.

“Gold Key” works will now be considered for national-level recognition. National Medals will be awarded later this spring. The top entries at the national level will be displayed this spring and summer as part of the organization’s national tour.
