Generously sponsored by the Brooks Museum League, the Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards honors exemplary art by students in grades 7-12, recognizing their outstanding achievements in an annual exhibition and providing cash prizes and scholarship opportunities. Since 1989, the Brooks has been proud to partner with the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a national non-profit organization, to host the regional competition and exhibition for Memphis and the Mid-South area.
Each year we receive more than 2,000 entries in a wide variety of categories, including painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, sculpture, graphic design, film, fashion, as well as senior art portfolios. The student work is reviewed by a juried panel including regional artists, art educators, and other arts professionals. Regional winners are eligible for scholarships and cash prizes, are part of the exhibition at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, are invited to participate in an awards ceremony at the museum, and have their work sent to New York City for national judging.
All award winners: Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention, their families, and teachers are invited to attend the awards ceremonies. There are three separate awards ceremonies, divided by grade.

12:30 p.m. – 9th, 10th, and 11th Grades
