We celebrate students locally and nationally, with awards, exhibitions, publications, and scholarships.
All entries are considered for Gold Key, Silver Key, Honorable Mention, American Visions Nominee, and American Voices Nominee Awards. These are presented to students along with celebration ceremonies and exhibitions in each region.
Gold Key entries are automatically considered for national awards, including Gold Medal, Silver Medal with Distinction, Silver Medal, and direct scholarship awards.
We honor hundreds of students and their educators with a star-studded ceremony in New York City. Recent special guests include Tim Gunn, Alec Baldwin, Sonia Manzano, Amy Schumer, Billy Collins, Whoopi Goldberg, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
Regional, national, and traveling Art.Write.Now. exhibitions showcase selections of award-winning student work each year.
Selections of student work are highlighted annually in The Best Teen Art and The Best Teen Writing, and a list of all National Medalists is included in the Yearbook.
National Medalists are eligible for scholarships of up to $10,000.
