Our annual National Events is a time for teen creativity to shine. Held over three days, National Events brings together students, their families, and their educators, to New York City where teen medalists in the 2019 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are celebrated at a teen-only party, the National Ceremony at Carnegie Hall, and our closing event, Student Showcase.

Check-In and Ticket Pick Up

National Events kicked off with Check-In and Ticket Pick Up. Students, their families, and their educators journeyed from across the nation to attend the 2019 Scholastic Awards National Events in NYC. Check-In is where attendees received their National Medals, had their official portraits taken, picked up their tickets to the National Ceremony at Carnegie Hall, and purchased some Scholastic Awards merchandise.

More than a dozen organizations and individuals set up stations throughout the venue where students could create art, make music, try out new technology, and so much more!

National Ceremony at Carnegie Hall

On Thursday, June 6, 2019, the nation’s most talented teens were honored at the 2019 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards National Ceremony! Presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, the Scholastic Awards National Ceremony celebrated more than 700 student artists and writers from across the country at the legendary Carnegie Hall in New York City.

It was a star-studded affair with guests including Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actress, writer, and producer Tina Fey, Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated actress Rose Byrne, and the 22nd poet laureate of the United States Tracy K. Smith. Additionally, astronomer Lucianne Walkowicz received the 2019 Alumni Achievement Award, which was presented by fellow Scholastic Art & Writing Awards alumnus and fashion designer Zac Posen.

Student Showcase

Student Showcase was a chance for students who attended the Scholastic Awards’ National Events to talk about their work that was on display at Parsons School of Design and Pratt Institute’s Pratt Manhattan Gallery. From student-led art walks, panels on Gold Medal Portfolios and the National Student Poets Program, screenings of film and animation, to an open mic for National Medalists, teen creativity was front and center during the Student Showcase!

2019 Student Showcase

National Events is always a fun time as thousands of people come together to celebrate the nation’s most creative teens. The 2020 Scholastic Awards open on September 12, 2019–be sure to submit your work for the chance to be invited to National Events next year!
