By Anne on September 18th, 2012
I’ve been hinting at it for weeks and it is finally here – the 90th annual call for submissions for The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. If you are a creative teen – be bold and enter! Or, if you have a talented student in your life – spread the word! We can’t wait to see the showstopping stuff that is submitted this year. Our friends at the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers have all the details ready and waiting for you. Check out their post:
Last year, we reached an all-time high of 200,000 submissions from talented students across the country. This year, we anticipate even more! There are 28 categories to fulfill your every artistic and literary whim, and we’ll be giving away over a quarter of a million dollars in scholarships and awards! So what are you waiting for? Learn how to submit by clicking here.
For 90 years, the Awards have recognized the exceptional vision of our nation’s most talented teens, and this year you could be one of them! Join the ranks of alumni such as Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Joyce Carol Oates, Ned Vizzini, Zac Posen and many more.
Richard Avedon called winning his Scholastic Award in 1941, “the defining moment of my life”. “Being recognized meant that little pat on the back, the sense of confidence that I could enter a life that I loved, and I had someone behind me say, ‘This is okay.’”
