Since 1923 the Awards the Awards have recognized the exceptional vision of the nation’s youth, and we provide a singular opportunity for students to be noticed for their creative talents. Alumni of the Awards include artists like Andy Warhol, Philip Pearlstein, and Cy Twombly, writers Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, and Joyce Carol Oates, photographer Richard Avedon, actors Frances Farmer, Robert Redford, Alan Arkin, and John Lithgow, filmmakers Stan Brakhage, Ken Burns, and Ned Vizzini, and many more.
Today, the Alliance works with 100-plus regional programs across the country to bring the program to local communities, and over 60 scholarship partners. Teens in grades 7 through 12, from public, private, or home schools, can apply in 28 categories of art and writing for their chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited or published.
In the past five years alone, submissions to the program have topped 700,000 works, and students have been eligible for over $25 million in awards and scholarships. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards program continues to be the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.
Gold Key art and writing winners advance to the national level in New York City, and national winners will be announced in March. Gold Key students and their sponsoring teachers will be invited to the awards ceremony on May 31 at Carnegie Hall.
