The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science is pleased to announce that five students received recognition and awards in the 2018 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards Contest. This state-wide contest was open to students grades 7-12 across a variety of art and writing disciplines. This year, there were almost 2,000 unique entries. Scholastic recognizes three levels, gold key, silver key, and honorable mention works of art. Gold Key award winners represent the very best works submitted and are automatically considered for national-level recognition. Silver Key winners are those works that demonstrate exceptional craft and ability. Honorable Mention winners are those with great skill and talent.
