On January 28, the National Council of Teachers of English has awarded the Middle and Upper School art and literature magazines two Recognizing Excellence in Art and Literary Magazines (REALM) Awards for their 2019 publications. SPA was one of only two schools in Minnesota to earn these honors.
The Middle School art and literature magazine received a REALM First Class, the highest honor awarded, and was one of only 46 magazines in the country to receive the honor. The Upper School Iris: Art + Lit magazine was awarded a REALM Superior award.
The REALM program publicly recognizes excellent literary magazines produced by students with the support of their teachers. REALM is designed to encourage all schools to develop literary magazines that celebrate the art and craft of writing.
Please join us in congratulating our artists, writers, teachers, and magazine designers!
