Posted on 03/28/2018
Scholastic Art WinnerWalter (Quinton) Hammann, an eighth grade student from Clear Creek Intermediate, was announced as a National Gold Key Award winner in the 2018 Scholastic Art and Writing Competition. Only 20 students in the Harris County region received this highest honor from the New York nonprofit Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.

“Walter’s hard work and dedication on his self-portrait are evident in the beautiful craft and execution of his final piece,” said his art teacher, Tiffany Moroney. “He remained patient and persistent throughout the entire process while meeting any problems head on. I am so incredibly honored to be his teacher this year.“

His mixed media piece, entitled “Threaded,” along with 14 other seventh and eighth grade regional award winners in Clear Creek ISD are currently on display at the Midtown Arts and Theater Center in Houston through April 1.

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of the nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated. A record-breaking 346,000 works of art and writing were submitted for judging this year with less than one percent being recognized at the national level.

Hammann is invited to celebrate his accomplishment in New York City at the National Ceremony of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards at Carnegie Hall on June 7, 2018.
