The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers identifies teenagers with exceptional artistic and literary talent and brings their remarkable work to a national audience through The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The awards have an impressive legacy dating back to 1923 and a noteworthy roster of past winners including Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford, and Joyce Carol Oates. Teens in grades 7 through 12 can apply in twenty-eight categories of art and writing for the chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited or published.
MOCA will host the Gold Key portfolio winners from Northeast Florida including students from Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, St. Johns, and Volusia counties. Each of these winning entries will continue to national adjudication. On February 1 at 10 a.m., Jacksonville University will host the Awards Ceremony. Please join us afterward for the exhibition opening reception at MOCA. Silver Key and honorable mention work will be hosted by the Jacksonville Public Library.
