The Art Academy of Cincinnati (AAC) is proud to administer the Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards of Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana on our urban campus in historic Over-the-Rhine. The annual Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the nation's most prestigious recognition initiative for creative students in grades 7-12 and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers in the nation.

A unique collaborative opportunity exists to engage our community. The Regional Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are widely publicized and bring thousands of families and educators downtown as their creative teens participate in Regional Scholastic events. Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention recognition and AAC scholarships will be awarded to students. Educators, students, and their families are encouraged to attend the local Exhibition and Ceremony. Regional Gold Key recipients go on to compete for national medals in an Exhibit that culminates with the National Awards Ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York, NY.
