2014 Scholastic Cash Award Winners | 2014 Scholastic Student Artwork Exhibitionist

The Scholastic Art Awards is open to all students in seventh to twelfth grade from 70 Kansas counties. The Scholastic Art Awards is the largest and longest running recognition program for young people in the United States. Maurice R. Robinson, the founder of Scholastic, Inc., the children’s publishing and entertainment company, established the awards in 1923. Alumni of the awards include Truman Capote, Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath and Robert Redford.

Supported by their visual arts teachers and other community mentors, participants create and submit their best works of art. Each work is reviewed by a panel of art professionals for originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. A total of 2,186 entries were submitted to this years Scholastic Art Awards fromScholasticLogo all 70 Kansas counties, and almost 800 student works were selected for this year’s exhibition. From the almost 800 selected student works, just over 200 pieces were awarded the Silver Key Award and about 130 pieces were awarded the Gold Key Award. Gold Key Award winner’s works are automatically entered into the National Judging. Out of those Gold Key recipients, 5 are nominated for the American Vision Award. One National American Visions Award recipient is then recognized from each region.

Other awards and scholarships for The Scholastic Art Awards 2014 are generously provided by individuals, businesses and educational institutions in Kansas who recognize the importance of art in our schools. Last year, our sponsors gave over $351,000.00 in scholarships and cash prizes.
