Scholastic Art Awards.

Since 1927, Scholastic, Inc. has sponsored the Scholastic Art Awards to reward outstanding achievement by junior and senior high school students in the visual arts. In those sixty-three years, the program has brought recognition to countless young artists, encouraging many to continue with their art education. Richard Avedon, Paul Davis, Robert Indiana and Philip Pearlstein are among the now famous "alumni" of the Scholastic Art Awards.

The 1990 exhibition, hosted by Chicago's State Center of Illinois, featured 525 national award-winning works--chosen as the finest of more than 200,000 submitted. Entries submitted in fourteen media categories were judged and exhibited in sixty-eight regions across the country. More than 25,000 entries won finalist awards and were forwarded to New York City where panels of twenty-seven distinguished artists and educators made the final selections.

"Our national judges continue to be surprised, impressed and awed by the work they screen on the national level," said Chuck Wentzel, director of the Scholastic Awards Program. "In addition to technical proficiency, our judges look for the student's voice. It is amazing to witness the thoughts, feelings and ideas being expressed by students through their artwork."
