Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards has recognized the exceptional vision of our nation’s youth, and provided a singular opportunity for students to be noticed for their creative talents. It has grown to be the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.  The Awards received 230,000 original works from students during its 2013 program year.  Students’ submissions are judged on the Awards’ core values:  originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision.  Click heading above for more details.
