The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards program is the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the United States. Students submit works in a number of categories including photography, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and mixed media. Work is judged on originality, technical skill and emergence of a personal voice or vision. Gold Key winners will move on to the national competition.
