Hawkins student artist wins prestigious Scholastic award
(Apr. 1, 2023)
A Hawkins ISD student recently received a gold medal in a prominent national competition that has previously been won by some well-known persons.
Jaykob Dodd, a junior at Hawkins High School, recently learned that he had taken home the national gold prize in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.
“At first, they mailed something, which turned out to be a gold key. And I assumed that was likely for the regional contest, which I had won a few weeks before. I was given the national honor, it claimed,” Dodd claims.
“The scholastic art and writing contest is the largest and most prestigious art contest in the country. It’s celebrating its 100th anniversary.
Former alumni include artists such as Andy Warhol, Robert Redford, and writers such as Stephen King and Truman Capote,” says Jaykob’s digital media teacher Elizabeth White.
Before Dodd was selected for the national team, he had to compete in a tough competition. He cleverly used nature for his entry. “I just started mixing humans and pine cones.
It somewhat resembles mother and father nature. Just made what I think is a lovely picture of two people, one with a waterfall on her hand and the other with pine cones for hair,” he claims.
The small 2A school was fresh off of winning 19 blue ribbons at the Houston livestock show and rodeo, and now are celebrating again. “Jaykob is a very talented young man in a lot of areas, with a very bright future ahead of him,” White says.

I honestly don’t know if I have the words. I think today I’m in the shock phase and don’t want it to be true. But yesterday we lost the sweetest boy. Our hearts are so broken. Please pray for our family. We need them more than we ever have. Please pray for Jaykobs dad (my brother), his mom, his stepmom, his sisters, my mom (his grami), his girlfriend and friends, and all the rest of our/his family. His death has left a huge hole in our hearts. — with Rob Chatwin.
