CFISD students won 170 of the 1,357 awards. The regional competition featured 4,256 entries, judged by local and national art and writing professionals who volunteered their time.

Gold Key art awardees (203); Gold Key writing awardees (80); and American Visions and American Voices nominees (10) will advance to the national competition in New York City. National medalists will be announced on March 16.

Gold and Silver Key Awards regional ceremonies will be held at 7 p.m. on Feb. 24 (art) and Feb. 25 (writing) at HCDE, 6300 Irvington.
