The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards are the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in grades 7–12. The Philadelphia Writing Project serves as the writing affiliate for the Scholastic Writing Award for the 5-county region of Philadelphia.

Gold Keys are awarded to the very best works submitted to local programs and automatically considered for national-level recognition. Silver Keys are stand-out works submitted to local programs that demonstrate exceptional ability. An Honorable Mention designation is given to accomplished works submitted to local programs showing great skill and potential.

Gold Key honorees will receive an invitation to the 2020 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards ceremony. The ceremony is currently scheduled for Saturday, April 25 at the School District of Philadelphia.

Congratulations to all of this year's winners!
