About Youth Art Month

Youth Art Month (YAM) is an annual observance every March to emphasize the value of art education for all youth to encourage support for quality school art programs. YAM provides a forum for acknowledging skills that are fostered through experience in the visual arts that are not possible in other subjects offered in the curriculum.

About Scholastic Art & Writing Awards
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have an impressive legacy dating back to 1923. Over the years, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have grown to become the longest-running, most prestigious program for creative teens in the U.S., and the nation’s largest source of scholarships for creative young artists and writers. A noteworthy roster of past winners includes Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen King and John Updike.
The process begins across the country as young artists and writers in grades 7-12 submit work in 28 categories of art and writing to a network of regional affiliates who present award ceremonies and exhibits for selected works on a local level.  Gold Keys, the highest awards, are then submitted from each region for national adjudication. By luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients.   National Gold and Silver Medal winning students and their teachers receive national recognition, and are invited to attend the exhibit in New York and award ceremony at Carnegie Hall.
In the last five years alone, students submitted nearly 900,000 original works of art and writing. During that period, more than 60 top art institutes and colleges have partnered with the Awards to make $40 million in scholarships and financial aid available to regional and national Scholastic Award winners.


Splatter Paint Fashion Show by Erica B and Karly K at Sheboygan North High School

This video was part of an art advocacy piece that merges art and fashion. Erica B, grade 12, and Karly K, grade 11, spearheaded this project to deliver a powerful message on the importance of self-expression. A big thanks to Miranda Kay Levy, Project Runway (Season 12) contestant, North High administration, the models, videographer, and everyone else who helped make this idea come to reality.
