Maggs Garners Scholastic Arts “Best Of Show” Award

Congratulations to Fletcher Maggs who is the recipient of a Scholastic Arts “Best of Show” Award. Scholastic Arts is the nation’s longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens, and the “Best of Show” Award in Photography is a first for a ConVal High School student.

Maggs is a junior at ConVal High School and a completer of the Region 14 Applied Technology Center (ATC) Photo/Video program. He has been selected to be a member of the National Technology Honor Society and will be inducted this spring. In addition to discovering and perfecting his own photographic style, Maggs will serve as a teaching assistant for the ATC Digital Photo/Video program through an Extended Learning Opportunity (ELO) in his senior year. His long-term goal is to study photography and video production in college.

Scholastic Arts is an arts support organization that dates back to 1923. Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual arts, some of whom are themselves past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
