The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, presented by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, is the largest, longest-running recognition program of its kind in the United States. Established in 1923, the awards have recognized students who have become some of our nation’s most celebrated artists, including Stephen Kin, Sylvia Plath, Richard Avedon, Robert Indiana, Phillip Pearlstein, and Andy Warhol.
