Please congratulate the following FCHS artists on their regional success in the Scholastics Art and Writing competition. Submissions were considered by judges who look for work that best exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. The three winning categories include Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention.
These are considered the very best works submitted from Colorado based art programs. Gold Key works from students around the state are automatically considered for national level recognition. Winning artwork will be on display at the History Colorado Center in Denver for the month of February.
