Hutchison Girls Win Big at Regional Scholastic Art Awards

Hutchison girls won 53 Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards this year, with 10 Gold Keys, 21 Silver Keys, and 22 Honorable Mentions.
Once again, our girls were recognized for their incredible talent in the visual arts. With 53 awards, Hutchison led all other independent schools in the regional competition.
Congratulations are also in order for the professional working artists who work with our girls each day. They foster a classroom environment that inspires students to express their creativity and strengthen their confidence, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.
The Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards offers the girls a chance to compete on a regional and national level. It is an opportunity for them to be recognized for their talent and creativity. It is also a way for the public to see the level of work that is produced consistently by Hutchison’s visual art department.
