Scholastic Regional Awards for Trinity Artists

Three Titans recognized for exceptional art and writing by Scholastic
Two Trinity artists, Ella Holloway ’25 and Sam Nedeff ’25, and one writer, Ellie Hoke ’25, have been recognized in the annual Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, described as “the nation's longest-running, most prestigious educational initiative supporting student achievement in the visual and literary arts.”

“Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients,” reads the official award description. “Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.” Recognizing exceptional artwork by students in grades 7–12 throughout the U.S. Scholastic provides the largest source of creativity-based scholarships for middle and high school students.
Holloway and Nedeff’s work will be on display at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond through Sunday, February 19.
