Student Spotlights – January 2018

Congratulations to our Headwaters High Schoolers who submitted work to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Our Visual Arts Guide John Mulvany and Photography Guide Michelle Gardella helped students submit their work to this prestigious competition. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a group dedicated to “identify[ing] students with exceptional artistic and literary talent and present their remarkable work to the world through the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.” The Awards recognize talent, but also help students in exhibition, publication, and scholarship opportunities. Work is submitted to our local affiliate, Travis County, and has possibility to be recognized on a national scale.
