Are educators required to create an account?
We strongly encourage all educators to create a Scholastic Art & Writing Awards account, though they are not required to do so. Educators with accounts have the ability to create, edit, view, and monitor the progress of their students online.
We also use educator accounts to distribute Awards materials, such as certificates, to the educators of National Medalists. You may add a personal address to your educator account, and we will mail your certificate to this address. If you do not include a personal address, we will send any materials to the school address that is linked to your account.
Educators of National Medalists will not be able to reserve National Ceremony tickets or receive their educator award if they do not have an account.
