About the Awards:

With their shared tradition of stewardship of the arts, the SMFA at Tufts and the Boston Globe are proud to partner to present this year's Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards program has been part of The Boston Globe's commitment to the community for decades, and to the development, education, and well-being of young people in Massachusetts. Thanks to support from the Boston Globe Foundation, the Scholastic program introduces the Boston community to a new generation of young artistic talent and is just one of the many ways the Globe and its audience of readers support local talent.

The Boston Globe is New England's foremost regional news source dedicated to providing in-depth coverage in breaking news, sports, business, lifestyle, and arts. With a mission to provide truth and accountability, both in print and on, the Globe is the epitome of premium journalism, winning 26 Pulitzer Prizes over the past 50 years.

The School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts (SMFA) is a distinctive studio art school borne of a unique proposition – an alliance of a major museum, a top-ranked research university, and the oldest art school in the country. Founded in 1876, the school was conceived at the same time as the Museum of Fine Arts itself as part of their mission to educate through the arts. In 1945, SMFA began granting accredited degrees through a partnership with Tufts University, a relationship that continued until June 30, 2016, at which time the school was formally acquired by Tufts.
