We hope 2011 Scholastic Award winners from across the country are gearing up for the National Celebration at the end of the month… we certainly are! Before, during and after the big shebang, we want to hear what all of you are saying, see what you’re up to, and give you some tips on what to do and see. Enter “The Hub”- your one-stop for all of the info you’ll need.


Visit the Hub to answer your questions and interact with other 2011 Scholastic Art & Writing Award winners. In the Hub, you can view our Flickr group pool. Place pictures in the group pool of yourself wearing your medal in spots all over New York City — all who participate will be entered into a raffle drawing for $25 amazon.com gift cards! You don’t have to wait until you get to the Big Apple to start sharing pictures. We want to see how you’re preparing for the trip – whether it’s a picture of you packing your favorite jeans or trekking to the airport, share it with us! Just click “Join This Group” then “Add Photos.” All photos added to the group pool will be viewable on the Hub.

Also on the Hub, view our tweets and what others are tweeting at us. We’ll be tweeting tips of where to go and what to see, as well as updates regarding the Nation Celebration. Tweet at @artandwriting using the hashtag #AWawards, your tweet will show up on the page! Check out the Google map with locations of key points as well as picks from our staff and 2011 jurors. Use the different map options to get directions and see what’s nearby. Lastly, the Hub features a schedule, so you know what’s going on and when. The Hub is your web-stop schedule of events, map, directions and so much more!
