Class Experience

Gain insight from a former Awards judge (and teacher/mentor to past winners) about how to:
- navigate the process of submitting to the annual Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. 
- polish works in progress according to judging guidelines
- ask for feedback and critiques that help push you forward in your work
- determine the best category for submission
I have 8 years of experience guiding gifted teens through the process of submitting to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Numerous former students have received recognition at the regional and even national level; one former mentee even had the honor of having his work displayed in Washington, DC after the national awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall. In addition, I served as a contest judge for the Scholastic Writing Awards from 2012-2014, so I am very familiar with the judging criteria.  I am currently certified to teach English Language Arts and Reading for grades 7-12. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
None. But I do hope to hear back from students who choose to submit!
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students may ask questions about the content of their creative work.
