Established in 1923 by M.R. Robinson, who also founded Scholastic, Inc., The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards is open to students in grades 7-12, recognizing outstanding achievement in the arts. The Mississippi Museum of Art hosts the Mississippi Regional Competition each year. Students from middle, junior high, and senior high schools from across the state participate in the competition each year. More than 2,000 entries in a wide variety of categories, including painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, sculpture, graphic design, animation, textile fiber design, as well as art and photography portfolios are judged by a panel of judges over a course of several days.
