On March 1, 2014 at Phoenix Book Company, young authors select the cover art to YAA’s Bloom: Best Arizona Teen Writing of 2014 book, an anthology  from last year’s Awards state of Arizona submissions. Who will earn recognition, scholarships, and be eligible for YAA publication this year by entering the Awards?

Save the date for April 11th!

YAA hopes each participant “saves the date” for YAA’s annual Scholastic Art & Writing Awards ceremony this April 11th. Details will follow but anyone looking to help with the ceremony can fill out the YAA involvement survey with ideas.

Best Arizona Teen Writing of 2015 book publication notifications period extended through February 15th 

Authors of Gold and Silver Key works will soon be notified if those works have been selected for publication in the Best Arizona Teen Writing of 2015 book. Revising the original goal to have selections wrapped up by Monday, February 9th, the exemplary quality of works has prompted the book’s editorial staff to extend its selection period into the MLK Holiday Weekend. Thank you for your patience.

Looking back to 2014

Thank you for your support as we look to build this year on key accomplishments from 2014.

Last year, 63 of Arizona's grade 7-12 authors earned publication space in Bloom: Best Arizona Teen Writing of 2014. This year, YAA offers publication opportunities to Scholastic Writing Awards and Scholastic Art Awards participants. Who will earn publication this year?

From the 2014 Scholastic Writing Awards, over 150 grade 7-12 “Young Authors of Arizona” earned recognition and an invite to YAA’s annual Awards ceremony where authors Alberto Rios, Tom Leveen, and Myrlin Hepworth spoke. $10,000 in scholarship money was earned through authorship. Eight Arizonans earned invites to Carnegie Hall. 64 teens became published authors.

As lauded by Arizona Republic columnist E.J. Montini in “OMG – these Arizona kids can write,”  grade 7-12 authors got their words out to Arizona last spring. From 2014 Awards Gold and Silver Key works,  some earned publication in the first Best Of teen anthology in state history: Bloom: Best Arizona Teen Writing of 2014. In-fact, YAA remains the only Scholastic Art & Writing Awards affiliate in America that uses Awards entries to create an annual “best of” book.
