New Hampton School’s talented student-artists received notifications this week about their art submissions to the New Hampshire Scholastic Art Awards. This year, we are excited to share the news that 18 students were recognized. Please join us in congratulating these students for their artistic achievements.

Celebrating artistic voice

Students across the state may choose to submit their best art pieces to the Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire (SAANH) for consideration for a Gold Key, Silver Key, or Honorable Mention award. The Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire is a regional visual arts affiliate of the prestigious national Scholastic Arts & Writing Awards. This non-profit organization welcomes submissions and evaluates pieces from public, private, and parochial schools from grades 7-12 in 17 different visual art categories. The call for submissions goes out each September, and entries are accepted through December.

Faculty members assist students in selecting works that meet the judging criteria and then create high-resolution digital files of the works to submit. Schools are notified in early January with the award listings. The 18 New Hampton School students recognized this year achieved a total of 29 award recognitions. Their works cover a wide array of mediums, including ceramics, photography, digital art, and more. Of the thousands of submissions received statewide, only approximately 40% receive recognition, and a maximum of 7% are able to receive Gold Keys according to the award’s rules, highlighting the competitiveness of the competition and the high caliber of art submitted annually.

Gaining Exposure

Select artworks from the Gold Key winners are curated into a special exhibition, as arranged by the New Hampshire Institute of Art. This offers further exposure for student-artists among their statewide peers. All of our student-artists will be recognized formally at an awards ceremony in February.

The three students from New Hampton School who achieved a regional Gold Key award will have their pieces judged on the national level in the coming weeks. This year’s national winners will be announced online by Scholastic Arts & Writing Awards in March.


Please join us in congratulating the following student-artists for their contributions and achievements in the art community.
