Young Authors and Artists Showcase
Every year, SCVIP hosts a literary and art competition open to students ages 13-18 from Santa Clarita, Tena, and Sariaya. The Santa Clarita showcase offers students an opportunity to submit in three different categories: essay, poetry, and artwork. The winners selected from Santa Clarita’s judging are sent to Washington, DC for international judging in the national Sister Cities International Young Authors and Artists Contest.
