Dealing with the loss of a loved one at a young age can be difficult, but making art and writing can be useful ways for teens to process their grief. In 2016, the Scholastic Awards partnered with the New York Life Foundation to encourage grieving students to find a creative outlet to handle the emotions that come from experiencing loss at a young age. Through this partnership, the New York Life Award was created to honor six teenagers whose original works of art and writing helped them deal with their grief. Each Award also comes with a $1,000 scholarship.

Congratulations to the 2017 New York Life Award recipients: Gabrielle Broome, Benjamin Cruz, Ali Gaarsland, Melissa Lu, Alexa Russell, and Raymond Tang! Read More
