To put this amazing accomplishment into context...
This fall and winter, students across the country and from places abroad submitted more than 300,000 works of art and writing to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. 17,000, or just about 6% earned regional Gold Keys and qualified for Scholastic Art & Writing Award National Medals. Of those, just 2,200, or 0.7% received National Gold and Silver Medals!
