We congratulate ALL students who participated in the Scholastic Awards! This year the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards received nearly 320,000 submissions and less than 1% of those submissions received National Medals. Submissions are juried by panelists who look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. The top works in the country earned National Medals and were celebrated at a ceremony at Carnegie Hall on June 3, 2016.
