    Christin Bongiorni Gold Key Award Scholastic Art and Writing Contest

    Founded in 1923, The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the
    longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative
    teens in the U.S. and the largest source of scholarship funds for
    young artists and writers. Each year, ambitious students in grades
    7–12 from across the nation and in American schools abroad submit more
    than 165,000 works of art and writing to be evaluated by visual and
    literary arts professionals, educators, and scholars.

    The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers celebrates the creative
    achievement of America’s teens. The Awards were founded in 1923 to
    offer recognition and scholarships for students for their artistic
    talents. Students who excel in the visual arts and creative writing
    participate in The Awards to earn recognition, get their work
    exhibited or published, and to earn scholarships.

    Regional Awards

    Gold Key: The highest level of achievement on the regional level. Gold
    Key works are forwarded to New York City for national adjudication.
    American Visions & Voices Nominees: Works named “Best of Show” for each region.
    Silver Key: Works worthy of recognition on the regional level.
    Honorable Mention: Work demonstrating artistic potential.

    The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit
    organization, identifies teenagers with exceptional artistic and
    literary talent and brings their remarkable work to a national
    audience through The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The Awards have
    an impressive legacy dating back to 1923 and a noteworthy roster of
    past winners including Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote,
    Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates.

    The Awards are an important opportunity for students to be recognized
    for their creative talents. Each year, the Alliance partners with more
    than 100 regional affiliates across the country to bring the program
    to local communities. Teens in grades 7 through 12 can apply in 30
    categories of art and writing for the chance to earn scholarships and
    have their works exhibited or published.
