Masconomet Regional High School achieved excellent results at the Massachusetts 2019 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards competition. This a testament to the hard work and talent of our students along with that of every member of the art department faculty. The high school received a total of 65 visual awards (16 Gold Key, 17 Silver Key, and 32 Honorable Mentions)—the second highest total in the state! All Gold Key artwork is then judged on a national level with other Gold Key work from across the country later in the spring. This prestigious competition, which began in 1923, is the nation's longest running program for visual art and writing for teens in grades 7-12. In Massachusetts alone there were more than 15,000 pieces of work submitted for review. There will be an awards ceremony at Tufts University for Gold and Silver Key winners on March 16, 2018 and an exhibit of Gold Key work will be on view at Tufts as well from March 16th through March 25th.
