Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized some of America’s most celebrated artists while they were teenagers including Andy Warhol, Zac Posen, Idelle Weber, Ken Burns, Kay WalkingStick, and more. A jury of professional artists, curators, and arts educators spent more than forty hours reviewing three thousand one hundred six works of art submitted by more than a thousand individual student artists from across northern New Jersey.
Our students’ work was selected as part of the top thirty percent of the most outstanding work submitted. A virtual 2021 Scholastic Art Awards Ceremony for the Northern New Jersey Region was held in late February and the award winners were featured in a virtual exhibition on the Montclair Art Museum website.
