The 2011 contest is closed, but guidelines for the 2012 contest will be posted in the Fall. This one is a little more complex, requiring signatures and a great attention to the application process but it's huge!

Students submit their works to regional programs of The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers and its Regional Affiliates. Students can earn opportunities for recognition, exhibition, publication and scholarships. Works designated as Gold Keys on the regional level are forwarded for national-level review where they can earn Silver Medals and Gold Medals. Students can submit in 30 categories, including Drawing, Painting, Photography, Film & Animation, Video Games, Poetry, Personal Essay, Short Story and Humor.
