Each year, the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers awards teens from across the country. The National Awards winners travel to New York City for a breathtaking awards ceremony. (You can see some amazing examples of the award-winning work right here.) Alana Benoit from the Alliance is here with some news about this year’s event — which is also the 90th anniversary of the Awards! For the first time ever, in celebration of our 90th Anniversary, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards will webcast the 2013 National Awards Ceremony LIVE from Carnegie Hall on May 31 at 6:00 p.m. EST/3:00 p.m. PST. That means YOU can join in! We’re working hard to make this event extra special for everyone, including those who are unable to be at Carnegie Hall. We’re broadcasting this event with all of you in mind! On May 31, we will be joined by special guests Sarah Jessica Parker and Zac Posen to honor National Awards winners from across the country; recognizing their achievement and the commitment of teachers, friends and supporters that help make the Awards possible. We hope you’ll share this incredible moment with us by watching the Ceremony on our Webcast page. You can also salute these talented students and engage your community around this one-time only event by hosting a Local Webcast Celebration! We’ve created a toolkit overflowing with fun tips and ideas to make planning a local event a success, no matter how large or small. If you have questions while reviewing this guide or organizing your event, email us at And be sure to tweet about the Awards and our 90th Anniversary Webcast using the hashtag #AWawards! We’re continually inspired by the work we do and are thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate the creative talents of young people. We hope you’ll join us — from New York City with love!
