SCHOLASTIC ART AND WRITING AWARDS
Scholastic Art & Writing Awards
Each year, the Alliance partners with more than 100 visual arts and literary arts organizations across the country to bring the Awards to local communities. Teens in grades 7 through 12 apply in 29 categories of art and writing. Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
More than $250,000 is given annually through the Scholastic Awards program in awards and scholarships to top Awards recipients and their educators. In addition, more than $10 million in scholarships is set aside each year by our partners for recipients of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
