Year after year the Scholastic Awards program grows. With nearly a century of history and a bright future ahead, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have grown to be the nation’s longest-running, most prestigious recognition initiative for creative teens.
This year, students submitted nearly 340,000 works of visual art and writing to the Scholastic Awards; more than 90,000 works were recognized at the regional level and celebrated in local exhibitions and ceremonies. The top art and writing at the regional level were moved onto the national stage, where more than 2,700 students earned National Medals. Only 65 students in Pennsylvania won medals for writing at the national level. Katherine Hollister is one of those for her work “The Smell of a Cigarette.”
National Medalists receive certificates and medals and are considered for national exhibition, publication, and scholarship opportunities. Gold and Special Achievement Award Medalists are also invited to attend the annual National Events week of celebration in New York City.
Works that receive a National Medal are displayed in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards online gallery.
