Archer Students Have the 'Keys' to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Archer had a strong showing this year at the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards—which is in partnership with the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers. Since 1923, the Awards have recognized some of America’s most celebrated artists and writers, including Amanda Gorman, Joyce Carol Oates, Tschabalala Self, and Kay WalkingStick.
In the Writing Awards category, four Archer students received Gold Keys—Hollyn A. ’28, Sarah M. ’28, Vivan A. ’26, and Melinda W. ’26. Additionally, two students received Silver Keys—Vivian A. ’26 and Lucia P. ’24—and four students received Honorable Mentions—Lucine S. ’25, Lucia P. ’24, Stella L. ’26, and Melinda W. ’26. 

In the Art Awards category, Archer students received a whopping total of 23 awards. Of the submissions, six students received Gold Keys—Nita K. ’24, Layla T. ’24, Amelia H. ’24, Avalon G. ’25, Mia G. ’28, and Hollyn A. ’28. Additionally, four students received Silver Keys—Nita K. ’24, Sophia B. ’24, Anika R. ’25, and Liv K. ’26. Impressively, thirteen submissions received Honorable Mentions—Sophia C. ’25, Miya N. ’25, Ivy W. ’25, Hollyn A. ’28, Zoe S. ’28, London P. ’28, Sabrina R. ’28, Giovanna B. ’28, Caroline M. ’28, and Annie A. ’25 and Nita K. ’24 had two honorable mentions each.
