Locally the Boston Globe Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are presented by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Since 1923, the Awards have recognized and encouraged millions of students, including Truman Capote, Philip Pearlstein, Sylvia Plath, Andy Warhol, John Updike and Stephen King who won when they were teens.
