Every year, students from all over the nation submit their work to Scholastic for the art and writing awards. Students compete with others from their region (our school is in the South region). Within each region, the best submissions can earn Honorable Mention, Silver Key, or Gold Key awards.

From there, the Gold Key awards go on to compete with other Gold Key award recipients from across the nation. A student can then go on to win a Silver Medal or Gold Medal.

The Gold Medal winners are invited to New York to accept their award and they can have their work published.
