Scholastic Corporation is the world’s largest publisher and distributor of children’s books with operations all over the world. Scholastic India’s mission is to provide children in India with reading and learning opportunities that will cultivate their minds to the utmost capacity and enrich their lives.
To encourage creativity Scholastic India introduced Scholastic Writing Awards for outstanding original works by students of classes 4 to 9. These Awards are inspired by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, the longest-running and the most generous recognition programme for students in America. The winners are not only given attractive prizes, but their award-winning stories are also published every year in an anthology titled For Kids By Kids. By giving them a platform to publish their works, we encourage and motivate young talent.
