Dear Connecticut Art Educators: 
Please accept this invitation to participate in the Connecticut Scholastic Art Awards Program. This is a non- profit, all volunteer activity that is sponsored by the Connecticut Art Education Association, Inc. - your professional art educators’ organization.

Scholastic Art Awards of Connecticut is an affiliate of The Alliance For Young Artists & Writers. This program recognizes the work of talented young artists in Grades 7 to 12. Student artwork is juried by professional artists and university art faculty and is selected on merit for inclusion in a statewide art exhibition held at the Hartford Art School. Beyond the honor of being selected for this high quality exhibit, students may be awarded gold or silver keys and honorable mention places in each of 17 media categories. The winners of the gold key award at the close of the exhibit will have their artwork submitted digitally to the National Level Scholastic Art Awards. A national jury will choose works for exhibit in the National Show held in June 2021. Regional winners will be notified by an email sent to their art teachers. The Connecticut Regional Awards Celebration 2021 will be held virtually. Date to be announced. Gold, Silver and Honorable Mention winners will be invited to attend by email.
