The Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards is an affiliate of the Scholastic Art Awards/The Alliance For Young Artists & Writers and recognizes the work of talented young artists in Grades 7 to 12. The awards are the nation’s longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens. Student artwork is juried by professional artists and university art faculty and is selected on merit. Winners of “gold key” designations will have their artwork submitted to the national level awards competition.
