SOA Writers all over Charleston were glued to their computers tonight awaiting the announcement of the Scholastic Art & Writing awards.
From a preliminary reading of the results, it appears that SOA writers performed very well, scoring 150 awards, nearly double the 75 awards the school’s students received last year.
Doing an unscientific scanning of the list, I noticed that AL, FL, GA, etc., fly by pretty quickly. South Carolina — in large part because of the winners at SOA — goes by veeeerrry slow. The list scrolls on and on. A few states with much larger populations, notably TX and VA, also have long lists of winners.
A huge congratulations to all the writers and their teachers.
