Compiled by The Bedford Citizen

scholastic-logo-whiteThe 2016 Massachusetts Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have been announced on January 28.  Two students at the John Glenn Middle School and a dozen Bedford High School students are among the winners.

According to the awards’ website, students’ work was judged on Originality – Work that breaks from convention, blurs the boundaries between genres, and challenges notions of how a particular concept or emotion can be expressed;Technical Skill – Work that uses technique to advance an original perspective or a personal vision or voice, and show skills being utilized to create something unique, powerful, and innovative; andPersonal Vision or Voice – Work with an authentic and unique point of view and style. All work is judged blindly, meaning the judge does not know what school the student attends, the student’s name, race, gender, or any other information about the student. The Scholastic Awards believes in Freedom of Expression. No work will be rejected based on controversial content.
