The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have an impressive legacy dating back to 1923.
Over the years, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have grown to become the
longest-running, most prestigious program for creative teens in the U.S., and the
nation’s largest source of scholarships for creative young artists and writers. The
process begins across the country as young artists and writers in grades 7-12 submit
work in 28 categories of art and writing to a network of regional affiliates who present
award ceremonies and exhibits for selected works on a local level. All Gold key work goes on for National adjudication with the winners announced in late March 2020. The national ceremony is at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
