Gold Key work is currently being reviewed at the national level in New York City by a panel of creative professionals, and additional awards will be announced in March.
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, presented by The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, is the nation’s longest-running, most prestigious competition for creative teens. Students’ entries are judged blindly by some of the foremost leaders and influencers in the visual and literary arts.
