Upper and Middle Students received 204 Regional Scholastic Awards

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards recognized 110 Seven Hill students with 204 regional awards for their work across various categories. “I want to say congratulations to everyone who had the wide courage it takes to put your writing out there. It is a special thing to share what you have written and created,” said Mark Beyreis, chair of the Upper School English department. The department hosted a pizza lunch, honoring the 125 students who submitted their work for the competition. Beyreis thanked Head of Upper School Matt Bolton for his support with encouraging participation in the competition. Eight Middle Schoolers submitted work with six earning awards, including two Gold Keys. Junior Alice Bachelder was named an American Voices Award nominee, an honor given to only five students in each region, for one of her critical essays. Several students won five or more awards, with 30 earning Gold Keys. Gold Keys are the highest regional honor and recipients are entered into the national competition.
