ESJ Art Students Win More Than 75 Scholastic Art Awards

Episcopal Fine Art students competed in the 2021 Northeast Florida Scholastic Art Awards on Saturday, January 9. During this adjudication, judges from around Northeast Florida reviewed more than 2,900 entries ranging from 16 visual art categories. They were absolutely impressed and inspired with the quality of work they saw!

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards have recognized some of America’s most celebrated artists and writers when they were teenagers, including: Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Joyce Carol Oats, Charles White, Stephen King, and more. How exciting to be among these Scholastic Awards Alumni!

“These awards are a remarkable achievement for our ESJ Artists. They have been recognized as most outstanding regionally,” said art instructor Becca Hoadley. “Gold Level student Art will be on display in the Jacksonville Main Library, and moving on digitally to a National Level Jurisdiction in New York. National winners will be announced March 17.”
