You’ve been waiting, and it’s finally here – (drum roll, please) – we’re thrilled to announce the 2010 National Winners of The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards!

We received over 165,000 submissions to The Awards this year – a record number. Teens from Alaska to Maine submitted poems, plays and personal essays; hats made of paper and birds made from books; and self-portraits in almost every kind of media.

More than 1,300 creative teens received National Gold and Silver Medals, and fifteen Portfolio Gold Medalists earned highly coveted $10,000 scholarships. One of our 2010 Jurors said it best: “Students exhibited great talent and ambition and, most of all, sincerity through their creative process.” Visit our online gallery to view National Works from 2010, selections of which will be on display at the World Financial Center in New York City this coming June.

Congratulations to all the students and teachers who participated. We hope to see more of your creative works in the 2010–2011 program year. Here’s what our friends at Scholastic Inc. had to say about this great achievement!
