The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the longest running, most prestigious competition and largest source of scholarships for creative teenagers in the United States. The Awards program was created in 1923 by Maurice R. "Robbie" Robinson, founder of Scholastic Corporation, and has been administered by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers since 1994. The presentation of the MSAA exhibition and awards ceremony at the Regis Center for Art and the Weisman Art Museum demonstrates the high level of achievement by art students in Minnesota. This is the fourth consecutive year the University of Minnesota has hosted the Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards and it’s collaboration with the Art Educators of Minnesota is emblematic of the University’s commitment to furthering the educational and artistic opportunities for young people in Minnesota.
