The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a nonprofit organization dedicated to recognizing the most talented teen artists and writers in the United States and Canada, is inviting entries for its annual Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

Creative teens in grades 7-12 are invited to submit work in any of twenty-eight categories of art and writing, including film and animation, video game design, sculpture, photography, fashion design, poetry, journalism, humor, dramatic script, and science fiction.

Student submissions are judged on the regional level by the alliance’s affiliates, with the top winning works then presented to national panels of creative leaders to determine which will receive the highest honors. Sixteen graduating high school seniors will be awarded with Portfolio Gold Medals, which include a $10,000 scholarship. Additional scholarships are made available to Portfolio Silver Medalists and through sponsored awards and stipends to summer arts programs.

To be eligible, students must be in grades 7-12 in a public, private, parochial, home school, or out-of-school program in the U.S. or Canada, or in an American school abroad.
