    Hello students, parents, and teachers!


    Check out the key dates for the Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards Program for the 2022–2023 school year. All updates will be made live on the website above and we strongly encourage you to bookmark this link and check it frequently.

    Several events are still in the planning phase and will be announced (using this same link/location) in the coming weeks.

    We will not send an attachment document with key dates as in previous years due to potential date changes in the future. With the link above, educators, parents, and students will be able to find the most updated information.

How to enter

  • Create your account

    Both students and educators are required to create an account using the online registration system. This is where you will find your school and enter your work.

    Upload your best work

    Do not forget to seek feedback from educators, family, and friends and edit your work. Be sure to select the category that best represents your work by using detailed descriptions of each category. Review the 28 categories of art and writing.

    Upload your submission form with your entry fee or a fee waiver

    Entry fees are $10 per individual entry and $30 per portfolio. If the entry fee is a barrier to your participation in the awards, we will waive the fee when the student uploads a Fee Waiver Form. The decision to upload a fee waiver is up to the student and parent. Students are not asked to prove financial need through Title I status, etc. 

    The 2023 Scholastic Awards opened for entries on Thursday, Sept. 1, 2022, and the deadline is Monday, Dec. 5, 2022, at 12 p.m. CST.
