We are proud to announce that the 2015 NYC Scholastic Awards competition has just awarded 80 honors to Berkeley Carroll Upper School and Middle School students in the writing and art categories.
This continues our school's longstanding history of achievement in this prestigious competition and reflects our strong writing and arts programs.
Past winners include Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates.
More than 11,000 works were submitted to this year's contest, which is open to 7th - 12th graders in all NYC public and private schools and provides them with opportunities to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited or published.
With 53 writing honors, Berkeley Carroll placed as a Top 10 school in the writing category.
Originating in 1923, the Awards are the longest-running, most distinguished recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers. Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
Congratulations to all of our winners!
