From Scholastics:
"The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades 7–12.

This year, students submitted nearly 350,000 works of visual art and writing to the Scholastic Awards; more than 90,000 works were recognized at the regional level and celebrated in local exhibitions and ceremonies. The top art and writing at the regional level were moved onto the national stage, where more than 2,800 students earned National Medals. National Medalists and their educators were celebrated at the National Ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers awards nearly $300,000 in direct scholarships annually to top Awards recipients. We also partner with art institutes, colleges, and universities who earmark scholarships for college-bound Scholastic Awards recipients. The Scholastic Awards Summer Scholarship program provides opportunities for talented students with financial need to attend creative, pre-college programs all over the country during the summer."
