The Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire Program is a statewide network of art educators, artists, and arts institutions who are members of the New Hampshire Art Educators’ Association (NHAEA) and strives to foster creative expression and artistic achievement in all students, grade 7 through 12.
A moment of positive recognition can inspire a student to pursue a lifetime of creative expression. It is critical to provide each emerging generation of creative leaders with early encouragement and to support artistic development. Acknowledging that these skills are best nurtured in an environment in which creativity is valued, it is also essential to recognize and reward educators for their classroom efforts to encourage creativity, and to cultivate support for young artists.
We believe that: The arts should be a regular part of the education of all students. Working and thinking creatively are critical skills that should be taught to all students. Developing creative expression can make a significant contribution to success in a number of areas. These include: Academic Achievement Social Development Employability Communication Critical Thinking Collaboration Problem Solving Emerging Technology
Exemplary student artists should be recognized and rewarded for their accomplishments. Outstanding teachers should be acknowledged and recognized for fostering creative expression. Teacher participation is critical to fulfilling the goals of The Scholastic Art Awards of NH The arts are critical to the health and future of America's diverse cultural heritage and economic vitality.
Since 1923, The Scholastic Art Awards have offered millions of students the opportunity to display their art works for regional and national recognition. Their objective is to foster the confidence of young artists and to invite students to broaden their horizons with opportunities to receive national recognition. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the largest and longest running programs of their kind in the country. The Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire, A Regional Affilliate of the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, Inc. is administered by the New Hampshire Art Educators’ Association (NHAEA). The all volunteer advisory board is composed of appointed NHAEA members of the art education community who have extensive experience with junior and senior high school art programs in public and private schools.
