Get your sketchbooks, notepads, easels, and pens ready because it’s almost time to enter your masterpiece for the opportunity to receive recognition, exhibition, publication, and scholarships! With 29 categories of art and writing, there’s a place for whatever you create. From paintings to poetry, comic art to critical essay, the Scholastic Awards have many opportunities for you to share your vision and have your voice heard.

Last year we received more than 320,000 submissions from talented students across the country and provided access to more than $10 million in scholarships. Since 1923, the Scholastic Awards have recognized the exceptional vision of our nation’s talented teens.

So what are you waiting for? Join the ranks of alumni like Sylvia Plath, Andy Warhol, Lena Dunham, Robert Redford, Ken Burns, Kay WalkingStick, Zac Posen, Paul Chan, and many more. You can start your submission process in three easy steps:
