Since 1923, the Scholastic Art Awards have honored the artistic vision of students across the nation. Wayzata Public Schools has a distinguished tradition of students who create and submit their artwork to the program. The pages on the left are an archive of past award-winning Wayzata High School student artwork.
For more than 90 years, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have celebrated the creative achievements of teens across the country. The Awards provide students in grades 7-12 opportunities for exhibition, scholarships, publication, and recognition in the visual and literary arts.
Success in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is a fantastic way to encourage students to think critically and creatively. All Gold-key recipients' work automatically advances to the National competition in NYC and all Seniors in high school who earn National Medals in the Scholastic Awards have the chance to access over $8 million of dedicated scholarship money. Over the past 90 years, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards has grown to be the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.
A noteworthy roster of past winners includes Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen King, John Updike, and many more.
