Humble ISD students named 2015 Scholastic Art & Writing winners

The Harris County Department of Education names the 2015 Scholastic Art & Writing winners. Among the 18 area school districts and multiple charter schools, private and home schools, 21 Humble ISD students are represented.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards provide students in grades 7-12 with the opportunity to showcase their work. The competition’s purpose is to bring outstanding visual art and writing created by the students to a national audience by showcasing the work and encouraging creativity and career development.

Humble ISD is represented by six different schools, five high schools and one middle school. The students have either been awarded a Gold Key, Silver Key or a Honorable Mention Award.

A Gold Key artists and writers reception is scheduled at the Glassell Junior High School, 1001 Bissonnet, on Feb. 20 from 5:30-8 p.m. The Gold and Silver Key Awards regional ceremonies will be held at the Harris County Department of Education, 6300 Irvington, at 7 p.m. Feb. 24 (art) and Feb. 25 (writing).
