Harris County Department of Education, the regional sponsor for the Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, has received over 11,569 submissions from Harris County students for this year’s awards. The record number is nearly 3,000 more than last year.
“It’s really exciting to have this many entries,” said Teaching and Learning Center Director Andrea Segraves. “This is a testament to how successful our program continues to be. We look forward to announcing regional award recipients in the coming weeks.”
The deadline to submit works for consideration was earlier this month. Thirty judges participated in adjudication for artwork on Dec. 10. One hundred other judges are currently adjudicating over 6,600 writing submissions through Dec. 22.
