2016-2017 National Medalists

For the past 91 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. 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. For more information on the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, visit artandwriting.org.

Winning a Scholastic Art & Writing Award offers the opportunity for scholarships. At the regional level, award-winning seniors have access to more than $3.5 million in scholarships from local institutions. At the national level, $10,000 scholarships are given to 16 graduating seniors who earn Portfolio Gold Medals. A select number of Portfolio Silver Medalists will earn $1,000 Notable Achievement Awards, and seniors who earn Portfolio Gold Medals or Portfolio Silver Medals can leverage partial to full-ride scholarships from a network of 60 arts universities and institutes, which annually earmark $5 million in additional support.
