2021 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

February 19 - March 6, 2021

BMAC is proud to serve as the Vermont affiliate for the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, a prestigious national program that recognizes and nurtures the creative talents of teen artists and writers. In addition to seeing their work in print or displayed in a museum, students can win college scholarships and other prizes.

Students in grades 7-12 (ages 13 and up) are eligible to enter creative work in art and/or writing in 28 categories. There is no limit to the number of entries that an individual may submit, as long as the work was done in calendar year 2020. (Senior portfolios may contain work created the previous year.)

The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2020.

Vermont entries will be judged regionally by teams of experts in the fields of art and writing. Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention regional awards will be exhibited at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center February 19 – March 6, 2021. An Awards Ceremony will take place on Saturday, March 6 at 12 p.m.
