Dear fellow art teachers, parents, and students,      

Thank you for submitting your artwork to the San Antonio Scholastic Art Awards. Please follow this LINK to find the results.

There were over 2,300 art submissions from all over Bexar county this year! We congratulate those chosen and encourage those not listed to continue to advance their artistic talents and participate in next year’s awards. As a reminder, the Scholastic Art Awards uses a “blind adjudication” process – meaning judging is a merit basis with only the art object under review, and judges do not have any knowledge of student identity. Criteria for judging were originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal vision.

 If you received a Gold Key, the work(s) will be shown at the San Antonio Scholastic Art Awards Ceremony and exhibition at SAY Sí on Feb. 21, from 6 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. The exhibition will be on display from  Feb. 8-27. 

Details on artwork delivery dates, presentation, and other requirements can be found HERE.

We need YOUR help – Please help us with the costs of this year’s ceremony by donating HERE. 

Based on time and space limitations, only Gold Key recipients are recognized during the ceremony and exhibition. Gold Key artwork must be dropped off on January 24 between 11 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. or Jan 25 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. (If the artwork is not received by 5 p.m. on January 25, it will not be exhibited.)

Note: If Gold Key artwork can not be delivered for display, recipients will still be called at the ceremony.

Gold Key works are automatically entered into the national judging. There are no additional steps required. In New York City, panels of nationally renowned artists, art professionals, and arts educators review Gold Key works from across the country. The artwork is judged in the digital format. 

All National award recipients will be notified through their Scholastic accounts and by  March  2020.

If you need additional information, please call 210-212-8666 or email

Thank you all for making the San Antonio regional competition a huge success!
