Alex Chen ’23 Named American Voices Medal Winner for the 2021 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards
In January, Archmere sophomore Alex Chen was one of five students in the Delaware Writing Region chosen as an American Voices Nominee for the prestigious 2021 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. The American Voices nominees are “Best in Show” awards that most exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
From the pool of nominees, an esteemed panel of jurors in New York City then selects one writer and one artist from each region to receive an American Voices Medal. This month, Alex was declared the American Voices Medal Winner and Gold Key recipient for his Critical Essay, China’s Economic Transition and the Woes of State Capitalism.
The American Voices Medal for writers and American Visions Medal for artists are the highest regional honors presented by the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The award is presented by the Diamond State Branch of the National League of American Pen Women, Inc. Only one artist and one writer from each region is presented with this award each year.
