Since creating the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards preparation program, Aralia has put great importance on cultivating students’ English writing and artistic abilities. Most students who won the awards this year have developed their soft skills for an extended period under the leadership of Aralia’s writing and art instructors. Our students have improved in both their confidence and ability to be able to participate in competitions. Their awards are evidence of their improvement and abilities in both writing and art.
Aralia is opening a new summer writing competition preparation class if you’re interested in submitting your work to the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards this Fall and other prestigious writing competitions throughout the year.
