Contributions of all sizes help the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers identify and support the next generation of creative minds. When you make a donation to the Alliance, you can choose to designate your gift to one of the following ongoing priorities:
Provides essential support for programs that amplify the voices of teens across the country. Beyond the Awards, the Alliance produces additional programs to support students, educators, and Alumni, including the Art.Write.Now.Tour, the National Student Poets Program, residencies for recent Alumni, and much more.
Provides the financial support that is often critical to a student’s decision regarding their higher education and career paths. The Alliance awards nearly $300,000 in direct scholarships annually to top Awards recipients. Other scholarship opportunities include the Scholastic Awards Summer Scholarship program, which offers opportunities for talented students with financial need to attend creative, pre-college programs all over the country during the summer.
Provides recognition, professional-development opportunities, and classroom materials to educators whose students excel in the Awards, especially those from under-resourced communities. Educators, in so many ways, are the driving force behind the Awards as they work side-by-side with their students, helping them select and perfect their best work to submit.
