Scholastic Art And Writing


Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is a prestigious and long-running program in the United States that recognizes and celebrates the creative talents of young artists and writers in grades 7-12. It was founded in 1923 by Maurice R. Robinson, the publisher of Scholastic Magazine.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards program allows students to submit their original works of art and writing in various categories, including:

1. Visual Arts: This category encompasses a wide range of visual arts such as painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, digital art, and more.

2. Writing: Students can submit their written works in categories like poetry, short stories, essays, journalism, dramatic scripts, and personal memoirs.

Entries are evaluated by a panel of judges, including professional artists, writers, educators, and other experts in their respective fields. Based on their evaluation, students can receive awards and recognition at the regional, state, and national levels.

The program provides young artists and writers with a platform to showcase their talents and offers opportunities for scholarships and national recognition. Many well-known artists and writers began their careers by participating in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards program, making it a significant stepping stone for young, creative individuals in the United States.
