The Spring Hill Arts Center (SHAC) is very excited for their first year as an Affiliate Partner for the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. SHAC manages the Natchez Trace Arts Region and the Natchez Trace Writing Region which cover Maury County in Tennessee. All students in grades 7–12 are welcome to submit their work. Drs. Daniel and Tanya Scherr, both college professors, will be the committee co-chairs for this year’s program. It is SHAC’s hope to extend this program into other connecting counties in future years.
