This spring, several Interlochen Arts Academy students earned high honors through the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. The competition was founded in 1923 and is recognized as the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for student achievement in the visual arts and creative writing in the U.S.
At the end of the fall semester, Interlochen welcomed renowned photographers and husband and wife duo Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison to campus. They met with students, viewed student work, provided feedback and presented their own work in front of a student assembly.
