Looking or feeling different from others can be a difficult journey for some teenagers. Organizations like Don’t Hide It, Flaunt It make this journey easier by helping teens celebrate what makes them unique and promoting mutual respect of the differences in others.

For the second year in a row, the Scholastic Awards has partnered with Don’t Hide It, Flaunt It, with sponsorship from RBC Capital Markets, to honor two students who explore the theme “The things that make me different, make me, me” in their art or writing.

We’re proud to announce the recipients of The RBC “Flaunt It” Award for 2017: Anushka Nair and Lindsay Pierce! Read More

The RBC “Flaunt It” Award is a new opportunity within the Scholastic Awards this year for teens who recognize what makes them unique and embrace their differences. Students were asked to explore the theme “The things that make me different, make me, me.” Works from all grades and across all categories of art and writing were considered for this award, with more than 10,000 submissions self-identified as eligible. After reviewing a pool of finalists, The Don’t Hide It, Flaunt It organization’s founder, Meg Zucker, and the Teen Board she convened were invited to select one artist and one writer to be the first recipients of The RBC “Flaunt It” Award.

Congratulations to this year’s recipients, Sydney Maddox and Peyton Vasquez!
