Each year the Cleveland Institute of Art hosts the Scholastic Art Competition that recognizes creative achievement in area 7-12 grade students. The young artists compete for cash prizes, medals, and scholarship awards. A panel of local professional artists, art educators, writers, and writing educators jury the exhibit and select the awarded pieces from nearly 1,700 entries. Students who receive Portfolio Awards and Gold Key Awards continue to the national competition held in the spring in New York City.
Since its start in 1927, the Scholastic Art Awards have acted as a venue for the community to view the exceptional artwork of public, private, parochial, and home-schooled students between grades 7 and 12. It also allows students, parents, and art instructors the opportunity to understand the importance of developing and encouraging creativity and the limitless opportunities bound with an art education. Past winners include Truman Capote, Robert Redford, Andy Warhol and Sylvia Plath.
