Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

2022 Exhibition: February 5-20, 2022 (True F. Luck Gallery at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond)
Open to the public during VisArts’ normal operating hours. Masks + social distancing required!

The Visual Arts Center of Richmond is honored to exhibit regional winners of the Scholastic Awards in Virginia, the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative students in grades 7–12. The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards partners with over 100 visual and literary arts organizations across the country to bring recognition and celebration to innovative young artists in local communities.

As the affiliate partner for the Richmond area, VisArts receives submissions from students at schools in Richmond City, Hanover County, Henrico County and Chesterfield County. Students apply in 29 various categories of art and writing and their work was evaluated by a select group of jurors. A small portion of submitted works are then selected for Honorable Mention, Silver Key, and Gold Key awards. Gold Key works will be on view in our True F. Luck Gallery from February 5-20, 2022.

Richmond Public Schools Scholastic Art Award Showcase 

We are excited to celebrate all the award winning work of Richmond Public School students in our Richmond Public Schools Scholastic Art Award Showcase. The Visual Arts Center of Richmond is proud to be a program partner of Richmond Public Schools. This showcase recognizes the talent of RPS artists, highlighting all RPS students who received an award in this year’s Scholastics Art + Writing Awards. We are proud to showcase this work as a celebration of the arts community of RPS and to encourage the next generation of our artists in our city.  

2022 Gold Key Award Ceremony 

This year we will hold our Gold Key Ceremony on ZOOM on February 12, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Please check your email for ZOOM link information.  

HOW TO APPLY

Artists and writers can create a Scholastic Awards account online, where they can digitally upload works or mail them in to the local affiliate (VisArts). If you are an educator, create your account to register your students. After uploading your work, you can print your submission form, have a parent/guardian and an educator sign it, and then submit or send your signed submission form and payment or fee waiver to VisArts.
