The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are open for registration.Each year, the Alliance partners with more than 100 visual and literacy-arts organizations across the country to bring the Awards to local communities. Teens in grades 7 through 12 apply in 28 categories of art and writing. 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.Last year, students submitted 255,000 works of art and writing to the Awards; more than 68,000 were recognized at the regional level and celebrated in local exhibitions and ceremonies. The top 2,000 works in the country earned National Medals and were celebrated at a ceremony at Carnegie Hall.

"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
