SCAD is proud to serve as the Georgia affiliate and program administrator for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.
For the past 90 years, the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards have recognized the exceptional vision of our nation's youth, providing a singular opportunity for students to be recognized for their creative talents. Since being founded in 1923, the awards have identified the early promise of some of our nation's most exceptional visionaries. Notable award recipients include artists Andy Warhol, Philip Pearlstein and Cy Twombly; writers Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote and Joyce Carol Oates; photographer Richard Avedon; actors Frances Farmer, Robert Redford, Alan Arkin and John Lithgow; filmmakers Stan Brakhage, Ken Burns and Ned Vizzini; and many more.
The awards are structured so that student work is judged first at the regional level and then at the national level. All submitted works are reviewed by local professionals working in the visual and literary arts and receive Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention Awards. Select award-winning works are also included in a regional exhibition.
Works that receive Gold Key recognition at the regional level are automatically included in the pool of nationally judged Gold Key work from across the country.
