Sugar Land, Texas — SpiderSmart at Sugar Land students received national and regional recognition for a year of extraordinary creativity and diligent work in writing. The Alliance for Young Artist and Writers announced the regional winners of the 2022 Scholastic Art and Writing Competition. This prestigious competition is the nation’s longest-running recognition program for teens.
Among the winners were more than 34 SpiderSmart at Sugar Land students who carefully crafted a wide variety of writing — from critical essays to personal narratives to poems to creative writing — during our 2021 Summer Camp and the 2021 Fall Semester.
2022 entered the second year still clouded by the COVID-19 pandemic, but it did not limit our students’ tremendous growth. Professionally-trained teachers worked closely with students to develop their writing into competition-quality work. This involved paying attention to style, curating the flow, and maintaining a consistent voice.
This meticulous work paid off: our students received 64 awards in total — one national gold medal, one national silver medal, 26 Gold Key, 21 Silver Key, and 15 Honorable Mention.
