Students honored for achievements in art and writing

Each year, the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards honor the creative abilities of middle and high school students throughout the country. This year in regional competition, Chesterfield County student achieved a total of 110 Gold Keys, 196 Silver Keys and 298 honorable mentions. Because there is not a central Virginia competition, Chesterfield students compete in the Southeast region at large, which covers several states. Gold Key winners go on to national competition; national winners will be announced March 14 and honored in a New York City ceremony. Here are Chesterfield County’s regional winners:
