The Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards (MSAA) recognize our state's most creative teenagers and offer scholarship opportunities for graduating high school seniors. It's open to all Minnesota students in grades 7 through 12. Beyond Minnesota, the Scholastic Art Awards are a national competition for awards and scholarships. Selected artwork advances to the national competition in New York.
The Scholastic Art Awards are one of the only nationally competitive programs to recognize outstanding artistic achievement among students in grades 7-12. Receiving a scholastic art award distinguishes young artists for their creativity and hard work and rewards them with both recognition and scholarships. Previous recipients include Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates.
Typically, a student's teacher will submit (via an online form) the student's work for consideration. This year we received 1376 individual artwork entries and 170 portfolio entries. All the entries are judged by high school art teachers from outside of Minnesota.
In support of arts education throughout the state, MCAD facilitates the administration of the awards program.
Now in its 89th year, the Scholastic Art Awards is a program of the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a nonprofit organization dedicated to recognizing the nation's most talented teen artists and writers.
