Why do I grant the Alliance a non-exclusive license to use my work when I submit?

The Alliance is proud to promote the exceptional work of young artists to a wide audience of educators, students, program partners and the general public through exhibitions, special events, print and online publications, and social media. This includes the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards National Exhibition, displays at the U.S. Department of Education and the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences in Washington, D.C., and the Art.Write.Now.Tour.

To do these things, we need permission from you. The non-exclusive license allows us to use, copy, change, publish, publicly perform, distribute, exhibit, or add to your work without further permission or approval from you as part of our mission to promote creative self-expression among young people. Students will always be notified if their work is shown in these special exhibitions and all displays or publications will attribute you to your work. This non-exclusive license also means that you can submit the same work you submit to us to other scholarship programs or contests, keep the work in your portfolio, and license it to others for non-exclusive publication.
