Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated. Each year, increasing numbers of teens participate in the program, and become a part of our community–-young artists and writers, filmmakers and photographers, poets, and sculptors, along with countless educators who support and encourage the creative process.
During the regional round of adjudication, the judges reviewed over 3700 works of art submitted by over 1100 students from northern New Jersey.
The selection process is extremely competitive allowing only 7% of regional submissions to move onto the national level, Gold Key Award. Only 20-25% of students garnered awards at the Silver Key Award and Honorable Mention.
