IMPORTANT NOTICE/CANCELLATION UPDATES:
We regretfully inform you that the 2020 Harris County Department of Education Regional Scholastic Awards Art and Writing Ceremonies for Silver and Gold Key winners have been canceled amidst growing concerns about protecting students, their families, and educators from the potential spread of the novel coronavirus that causes the disease called COVID-19. The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, the nonprofit organization that presents the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, is also committed to protecting the health and safety of its award winners, their families, and educators.
If you have questions, please email Andrea Segraves at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How it Works
Each fall, entries are judged by panels of highly-qualified professionals who select Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention recipients.
Gold Key winners go on to compete at the national level. More than 1,500 students receive national awards each year. Past winners include Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates.
Students should create accounts at https://www.artandwriting.org/Login and upload their works through the national site.
