The National Scholastic Arts Awards began in 1923 by M.R. Robinson, the founder of Scholastic Inc. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the most longest‐running and prestigious recognition program for creative teenage students grades 7 ‐12.

For the Louisville region, The Scholastic Art Awards are administered for the Louisville Metropolitan Region by Jefferson County Public Schools with support from the Fund for the Arts and Kentucky Museum of Art & Craft. IN 2012, 1871 individual artworks and portfolios were submitted from Jefferson County and the 12 surrounding counties which make up the Louisville Metropolitan region. 587 of those works were selected for the regional awards and exhibition.

137 individual Gold Medal works and 17 Gold Medal portfolios were sent to NYC for national judging. Entries were from 45 schools, 1 home school, and 1 art organization. 26 National Gold and Silver medals were awarded to art students from the Louisville Metropolitan region. These students were recognized at Carnegie Hall in New York City in June 2012. For more information on the Scholastic Arts Awards, contact Melisa Gano with JCPS.
