About Scholastic Art and Writing Awards

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards is the longest-running, oldest, and most prestigious literary and art competition in the United States, aiming to find creative works and original technical skills by students in grades 7-12. Since 1923, the Academic Art and Writing Award has recognized the vision, originality, and talent of young people, and has provided opportunities and academic awards for creative young people to express their talent. The high school award is a symbol for the pursuit of excellence and will help students stand out in university applications and scholarship applications.

Every year, in about 29 art and writing categories, teenagers in grades 7-12 submit more than 330,000 art and writing works. The judges are composed of the most outstanding figures in the field, and they will evaluate and select regional and national awards, on a regional level and national level.

Students who can participate in the competition: American/Canadian students in grades 7-12, international students studying in American schools.
