Congratulations to all the Midlo students who won Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, as the prestigious recognitions have officially been announced. Students who submitted work in the competition were able to win Gold and Silver Keys, as well as Honorable Mentions.

Between the three awards, Midlothian Visual Arts students received a total of 29 Regional Art and Writing awards. Of these awards, seven were Gold Keys which are the highest honor as they continue on to New York where they will be considered for national recognition.

Due to COVID-19, the award show at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond will only display Gold Key work this year. Making sure to take all necessary safety precautions, the show will start February 6 and end on February 21, 2021. The Silver Key and Honorable Mention work, however, will not go unnoticed, as an online show will also premiere on February 6 to recognize all regional award winners. Normally recognized and awarded in person, the Gold Key ceremony will also be virtual this year.

Congratulations to all the students who received awards, as it is an incredible honor!
