Join us as we celebrate this year’s National Medalists! Works by National Medalists from all over the country will be highlighted along with special segments featuring our scholarship winners and Gold Medal Portfolio Award winners.
This year, we’ll be joined by Oprah Winfrey, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, Sara Bareilles, Kristen Bell, Tituss Burgess, Kelly Clarkson, Reese Witherspoon, and Tschabalala Self in celebrating the 2021 National Medalists. We’re excited to share the heartfelt remarks of our special guests and hope their words of encouragement and enthusiasm for recognizing award-winning teen art and writing inspire you to create something meaningful and original, and that you feel empowered to share your creativity with others.
Empower Our Creative Teens! Support the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.
