This year I was honored to be asked to judge for the 33rd Annual Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers identifies teenagers with exceptional artistic and literary talent and brings their remarkable work to a national audience.  Having submitted my work in middle school and high school it was very interesting to be on the other side of the curtain. I judged the categories of architecture, design & digital art and saw some truly excellent pieces! See for yourself as the top 650 individual works will be on view from January 14 until February 2 at the Reinberger Gallery at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Gold Key Winners across the U.S. will move forward to the national competition in New York City. - Savannah Dugan
