Students Recognized with Scholastic Art and Writing Awards
With their shared tradition of stewardship of the arts, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts and the Boston Globe presented this year’s awards.

The Scholastic Art and Writing program is the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades 7-12. Students apply their work in 29 categories of art and writing. Submissions are reviewed by a panel of judges in the visual and literary arts. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
