Recently, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards honored the nation’s most talented teens at the 2020 National Ceremony!
Presented virtually for the first time, the event celebrated this year’s National Medalists and showcased some of their creative works of art and writing. Celebrity guests Chris Colfer, Lena Dunham, Jennifer Garner, along with surprise guest Gal Gadot took part in the ceremony to recognize the award recipients and offer their congratulations.
We also heard remarks from Scholastic Chairman and CEO Dick Robinson, the Alliance of Young Writers & Artists’ Executive Director Chris Wisniewski, the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts’ Director of the Arts Council Jocquelyn Downs, Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins, and Dog Man author and illustrator Dav Pilkey.
