The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers was founded in 1994 to administer the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, which have an impressive legacy and a noteworthy roster of past winners including Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford, Sylvia Plath and Joyce Carol Oates. The Scholastic Awards began as a small writing contest with a $5 prize and six winning applicants in 1923.
