NCHS students take home the gold in Scholastic Art Awards


Jillian Augustine, Arts Section Editor @JillAugCourant The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards is a group that was established in New York in 1923, and have been accepting student art from all over the country ever since.

In reality, some students have barely even scrolled through the library website. This isn’t because the resources are inadequate, it is simply because platforms like Destiny Quest and the databases with their endless passcodes can be difficult to navigate.
