Can I re-submit a work that I submitted to the Scholastic Awards in a previous year?

Previously awarded works can be re-submitted only as part of a portfolio. Works that did not earn a Regional or National Award in previous years may be re-submitted to individual categories if they have been edited significantly.

Can I submit my Scholastic Awards submission to another program at the same time?

If you plan to submit work to another awards program or publication, review their rules first to confirm that they are willing to share rights and will not hold exclusive rights to your work. In the case that your work receives a Scholastic Award, it must be free to use in our publications or exhibitions.

Can I submit work that has been previously published, exhibited, or recognized by another program?

If your work has been previously published, exhibited, or recognized by another program, confirm that they do not hold exclusive rights to your work before submitting it to the Scholastic Awards. In the case that your work receives a Scholastic Award, it must be free to use in our publications or exhibitions.
