Bay View Students Shine at Northeast Scholastic Art Competition


East Providence, RI – St. Mary Academy - Bay View is proud to announce that students have received awards in the prestigious Scholastic Art Award competition. Two Bay View students were honored with coveted Gold Key awards, four students earned Silver Keys, and three students received Honorable Mention.

The nation’s longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens, The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards were founded in 1923 and, for nearly a century, have inspired bold ideas in creative teens throughout the country.

Submissions are evaluated in numerous categories, including design, digital art, mixed media, painting, sculpture, and ceramics and glass. The entries are classified according to media, then sorted by grade level. Panels of regional jurors, made up of museum curators, college and university professors, and professional artists evaluate the work in a blind judging process with Gold Key works automatically advanced to the national level.

Students will be recognized at the Scholastic Awards Regional Key Celebration that will stream live on Wednesday, March 15 at 7:00 pm.
