Since 1923, The Scholastic Art Awards have offered millions of students the opportunity to display their art works for regional and national recognition. The objective is to foster the confidence of young artists and to invite students to broaden their horizons with opportunities to receive national recognition. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the largest and longest running programs of their kind in the country.

Derryfield students work that was recognized includes one middle school student and 24 upper school students. Their work was among nearly 1500 pieces considered from all over the state of New Hampshire. Gold Key winning work will now go on to be considered for scholarships and national awards, and may be presented in NYC at this year's annual Scholastic Art Award Celebration at Carnegie Hall.
The artwork of students from Derryfield and recognized students from all around New Hampshire will be a part of a virtual exhibition and award ceremony planned for March 5.
