 Scholastic Art and Writing

The Harris County Department of Education (HCDE) recognized 24 Humble ISD students with Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The Scholastic Art & Writing awards provide an opportunity for young artists, in grades 7-12, to showcase their work. Annually the competition brings outstanding student visual art and writing to a national audience by showcasing the work and encouraging creativity and career development.


The HCDE Scholastic Art & Writing Reception was held on February 28 at Spring Street Studios, in Houston. Daniela Soto Borboa, Summer Creek High School junior, received a $500 Texas Art Supply Award scholarship. Her art teacher is Lynnette Gilbert.
