    The Scholastic Art Award program is offered through a partnership of The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers and visual and literary-arts organizations across the nation.

    Students grades 7-12 submit works to a variety of art and writing categories.

    According to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards website, “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.”
