About the Scholastic Art Awards

Since 1979, Barton College has hosted the Awards for the largest regional district in the state, currently with 62 counties from Winston-Salem to the Coast. The College is fortunate to be associated with The Wilson Daily Times, which provides financial support for the Scholastic Art Awards program.

The Awards provide the opportunity for teenagers to have their work exhibited in prestigious galleries. Barton College, as a regional affiliate hosts the work of eastern North Carolina award winners, each January. The works of 300 artists who earn Gold Medals and American Visions Medals are included in the national exhibition to be held in New York City.

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is the nation’s most prestigious recognition program for artists and writers, which identified the early promise of Richard Avedon, Joyce Maynard, Tom Otterness, Philip Pearlstein, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Joyce Carol Oates, Andy Warhol, and Zac Posen.

More than $3.25 million in scholarships are available to graduating seniors who earn national medals through the Alliance Scholarship Provider Network. Twelve Portfolio Gold Medalists earn $10,000 scholarships from the Alliance. Select regions also offer cash awards, grants and other incentives. The Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design, a consortium of leading art and design colleges in the U.S., recognizes The Scholastic Art Awards as an effective way for students interested in art and design to develop successful portfolios for college admission.
