For 57 years Scholastic, Inc., with the cooperation of civic-minded sponsors, has conducted an art awards program for American high-school students. Aiming to encourage student achievement in creative art, the program has started many worthy students on their way toward advanced study and careers in the art field. Jewelry is one of the 15 classifications in which honors are awarded.
Regional exhibitions of the best work from art classrooms of secondary schools are held in February. From these a national jury of distinguished artists and art educators select finalists who receive honors, including 100 tuition scholarships granted by art schools and colleges, gold medals, certificates and special awards. Outstanding work is shown at the National High School Art Exhibition.
