Fargo, N.D., Feb. 14, 2023 – The Red River Valley Writing Project at North Dakota State University and Plains Art Museum have announced the regional award recipients of the 2023 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. It is the country’s longest running and most prestigious recognition program for creative students in grades 7-12. This year, 90 creative teens from North Dakota received regional honors, including Gold Keys, Silver Keys, Honorable Mentions and/or American Visions and Voices nominations from the local Scholastic Awards Affiliate. “For creative teens in North Dakota, these awards are equivalent to what the state tournaments are for athletes – a recognition of hard work and a showcase of talent,” said Benjamin Melby, director of the Red River Valley Writing Project at NDSU. “Every teen in North Dakota, from Belcourt to Beulah, from Williston to Wahpeton deserves recognition for creative talent in writing and art. Midkota High School had one recipient of the Writing Award: Abigail Dreher, Senior! All Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention award-winning works will be on display at the Plains Art Museum’s Starion Gallery from February through March 4. The North Dakota state awards ceremony is scheduled for March 4 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo. Over $2,500 in cash prizes will be awarded at the ceremony thanks to the generous sponsorship from John Deere. The winners of NDSU scholarships in art and writing will also be announced, along with this year’s American Voices nominees. For Gold Key works of art and writing in the 29 categories, including architecture, painting, flash fiction, poetry, printmaking, video game design and more, the opportunities for recognition will continue when those works are adjudicated again on a national level by a panel of leading creative professionals. National gold medalists will be announced on March 22 and will be honored during a special awards ceremony at the world-famous Carnegie Hall in New York City in June. Since the program’s founding in 1923, the Awards have fostered the creativity and talent of millions of students, including renowned alumni who have gone on to become leaders in their fields, including Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Philip Pearlstein, and Sylvia Plath. More recently, Stephen King, Richard Linklater, Zac Posen, Lena Dunham, and Amanda Gorman received Scholastic Art and Writing Awards when they were teens. Congratulations Abigail!
Have a great week!
