Dozens of Burlington Students Recognized in Boston Globe Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Competition


A large number of Burlington students have been recognized for their works of art and writing in a regional portion of a national competition. 


“Congratulations to the Burlington students who have received individual Gold Keys, Silver Keys and Honorable Mentions at the annual Boston Globe Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition,” BHS Principal Mark Sullivan said in a blog post. 


The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have existed since 1923 and the contest affords students across the country the opportunity to be recognized for their talents, Sullivan explained. At the regional level, students are selected to receive the Gold Key, the Silver Key, or Honorable Mention.  Additionally, each state nominates five selected Gold Key level awards as American Visions & Voices Nominees to be further judged with the hope of achieving the distinction of “Best of Show”.  

The 2016 Burlington High School and Marshall Simonds Middle School award winners were selected from more 15,000 art entries and 2,500 writing entries submitted to the Massachusetts Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
