“Brilliant, talented, creative, gifted, skilled.” These are adjectives used by Harris County Department of Education’s Teaching and Learning Center Director Andrea Segraves to describe this year’s Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards honorees.
Over 2,500 Harris County students were recognized during HCDE’s Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards virtual ceremony Thursday evening. Thirty-two special awards were presented to students valued at a total of $12,000 in prizes and scholarships, and Gold and Silver Key award recipients saw their names displayed on the screen as their families and friends looked on.
In March, 85 Harris County students were selected for National Medals after receiving regional Gold Key Awards.
