Cooper Students Sweep Scholastic Art Competition

Visual Art Students Win Multiple Awards
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards were founded in 1923 and for nearly a century have inspired bold ideas in creative teens throughout the country.

"Our students' work expresses an authentic perspective, and entries were selected for awards that exemplify the Awards' core values: originality, skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision," said Jennifer Schiebel, Digital Photography Instructor and 11th Grade Advisor.
