A Gold Key Award art piece is sent onto the national competition, a Silver Key Award earns 1st in state, and Honorable Mention earns special state recognition.

The Scholastic Art Competition is comparable to the state football playoffs for student artists. It is truly an honor to have their work selected to be in the Scholastic Exhibition, let alone be on display in the Milwaukee Art Museum.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have provided an avenue for young artists and writers, in grades 7-12, to receive recognition and rewards for their creative achievements since 1923. By acknowledging the visions and voices of emerging artists and writers, The Awards have helped nurture eight decades of promising talent by providing recognition, cash awards and college scholarships.
