Last year, we reached an all-time high of 200,000 submissions from talented students across the country. This year, we anticipate even more! There are 28 categories to fulfill your every artistic and literary whim, and we’ll be giving away over a quarter of a million dollars in scholarships and awards! So what are you waiting for?

For 90 years, the Awards have recognized the exceptional vision of our nation’s most talented teens, and this year you could be one of them! Join the ranks of alumni such as Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Joyce Carol Oates, Ned Vizzini, Zac Posen and many more.
Richard Avedon called winning his Scholastic Award in 1941, “the defining moment of my life”. “Being recognized meant that little pat on the back, the sense of confidence that I could enter a life that I loved, and I had someone behind me say, ‘This is okay.’”
Let your creative voice be heard, and submit your work to the 2013 Awards!
