This summer, we encouraged you to Start.Write.Now! Invited to share your out-of-school bursts of creativity with us, many of you sent poems, short stories, paintings, drawings, and photographs. Check them out here in an album on our Facebook page! We hope that these samples of summer writing and artwork will inspire you to submit your own original efforts to the 2014 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Be sure to also see the creative tips, categories, artists, and writers we featured here this summer to help get you going, and visit our online Student Showcase to view past Award winners’ work.
As of 4:30 PM on October 21, we have received 4,057 Awards submissions. These entries came from makers and breakers in 48 states and 13 other locations including Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Egypt, Nigeria, Puerto Rico, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand! We counted 2,463 works of Art, 1,589 pieces of Writing, and many more entries for our Sponsored Awards – Future New, Duck Tape, Gedenk Award for Tolerance and Creativity & Citizenship.
