The School Art League recognizes the artistic accomplishments of high art school students with cash awards for achievement in the visual arts and academics. 



Every public high school principal may select students to enter a portfolio for these juried awards. The New York City Department of Education Memo: "School Art League Awards and Scholarships", will be sent to all schools and will be available on our Memos page.
