It has been a fast and furious month! We’ve seen an outpouring of support and cannot thank you enough for donating and sharing our campaign to raise $50K by December 2!

Today is #GivingTuesday and the last day of our fundraising campaign! Giving Tuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We have one last push to raise our goal by midnight, 12/2.

We need YOU to help us raise $50K by midnight! Here’s how:

1. Donate to our online campaign directly and share a link with colleagues, friends, and family! Here is some convenient language to copy and paste or adapt for your social media accounts:

  • Great young artists and writers are worth it! Help us raise $50K by 12/2. I’m in!
  • Let’s do this! Help the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards present more great programming for teens
  • #myAWaward meant the WORLD to me. Help the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards raise $50K by December 2
  • Scholastic Art & Writing Awards alum Richard Avedon said winning a Scholastic Award was the “defining moment of my life.” Donate!
  • #myAWaward still surprises me. Listen to Scholastic Art & Writing Awards alums share their stories and impact

2. Post about the impact of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards on your life and tag it with #myAWaward. Encourage your friends, family, educators and colleagues to donate to the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers before the campaign ends at midnight.

3. Have fun and pick one (or two, three, four, five!) ways to $50K. We like #27 a lot (for all the night owls):

Host an Alumni Movie-thon night! Watch Boyhood (Awards alum and Director, Richard Linklater), Beasts of the Southern Wild (Awards alum and producer, Michael Raisler), and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (Awards alum and actor, Robert Redford).

It’s been an amazing month of #myAWaward videos and archival footage from our vault! Thank you so much for joining the conversation and sharing the impact of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Help us finish this month’s campaign with a bang by donating right now!
