The Nevada Museum of Art invites Northern Nevada students grades 7-12 to submit their creative and original work to the 2017 Scholastic Art Awards. Students can submit to any of the Awards’ 17 art categories, including ceramics, architecture & industrial design, digital art, drawing, photography, fashion, film & animation, and more. Submissions will be judged on originality, technical skill and the emergence of a unique, personal vision. The deadline to submit is January 12, 2017 at 8:59PM PST. Students will be notified by Friday, February 3, 2017 on their award status.
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is the longest-running recognition initiative for creative teens. For over 90 years the Awards have identified and awarded some of the nation’s most accomplished visionaries, and encouraged young artists and writers to pursue a creative life. Students submitting original work to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards follow in the footsteps of distinguished Awards alumni including Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Sylvia Plath, Richard Avedon and Reno’s own Michael Sarich. Last year 320,000 works were submitted, including over 1,400 art submissions from Northern Nevada. One hundred and one individual pieces and five portfolios received regional Gold Key awards.
Northern Nevada students grades 7-12 are encouraged to submit original artwork to the 2017 Scholastic Art Awards through January 12, 2017 at 8:59PM PST.
