For the second year in a row, we asked creative teens around the country to submit boundary-breaking creations incorporating cutting-edge technologies and techniques to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. We received an amazing variety of creations that defied the confines of the Scholastic Awards’ current categories, including 3D design, robotics, and performance art.

Three Future New submissions utilizing 3D Systems’ free 3D design software were awarded $1,000, sponsored by 3D Systems as well as a print of their work made using a top-of-the-line 3D Systems printer! Learn more about this year’s winners below! Read More
