Scholastic Art & Writing

November 4, 2020

Adapting during the pandemic

Thanks to Maine College of Art (MECA) who will be hosting the Scholastic Art & Writing awards this year in-state. Pamela Moulton provided the following information with more to come in the near future!


During the Pandemic we have all become virtual inventors, creators of content, and even actors. We’ve had to re-learn how to teach art, adapting to this year’s unique school platform. Maine College of Art applauds your efforts and energy to teach differently in hybrid learning situations. We are all making history together. 

Just as you have, Scholastics is adapting to respect our state’s protocol and will plan accordingly, hosting a virtual exhibition and ceremony to celebrate Maine’s budding artists. The silver lining is that students will not be required to frame or mat works of art as we can accomplish this digitally. This should simplify the process for everyone. Students will need to photograph and document their works of art professionally so the jury can fairly judge their work. This also means many more people will be able to view and celebrate student’s works of art from across the state and beyond! 

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated. Each year, increasing numbers of teens participate in the program, and become a part of our community—young artists and writers, filmmakers and photographers, poets and sculptors, video game artists and science fiction writers—along with countless educators who support and encourage their creative process.

If you have any questions about the program this year please contact Pamela Moulton at pmoulton@meca.edu.
