Scholastic Art Awards

About the 2018 Regional Scholastic Art Awards

Schack Art Center (formerly the Arts Council of Snohomish County) first presented the Scholastic Art Awards in January 1996, spearheaded as a grassroots effort by educator and artist, Susan Jane Russell and a handful of Snohomish County Teachers. In the twenty-two years since then, student entries have more than quadrupled and the regional awards have brought thousands of our community's young artist's local and national recognition. Participation in this program continues to provide a powerful tool for building community, advocating art education, and fostering the creativity of emerging talents.

Student artists have few opportunities for public recognition. However, through this event, the works of Snohomish County middle and high school youth are presented to a broad audience in a professional gallery exhibit complete with a public "Meet the Artists" reception and awards ceremony.

About the National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Last year, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, the nation's longest-running (since 1923) and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades 7-12, received a record-breaking 330,000 works of art and writing for adjudication from regional affiliates, including the Schack Art Center in Everett.

This program gives thousands of students throughout America the opportunity to broaden their creative horizons while earning local and national recognition. The objective is to foster the confidence of young artists and give them the opportunity to be recognized for their creative achievements by the world at large. The Alliance also partners with art institutes, colleges, and universities to earmark scholarships for college-bound Scholastic Awards recipients.
