Teen Writing Competition


The Scholastics Arts and Writing Competition deadline is approaching. This contest is open to students in grades 7 to 12. Stephen King, Robert Redford and Sylvia Plath are alumni from this program so it’s a pretty big deal.


  • Students in grades 7–12 in the U.S. and its territories, as well as American schools abroad, are invited to submit creative and original work in any of the Awards’ 29 art and writing categories, including architecture, painting, flash fiction, poetryprintmaking and video game design.
  • At each level of judging, all works are selected to move on to the next stage based on the same criteria that have represented the program since its founding in 1923: originality, technical skill, and emergence of personal vision or voice.
  • Deadlines for submission vary by region for the New York area the deadline is December 15, 2016 other areas the deadlines are throughout the winter months, with National Medalists announced in March 2016.
