Students' entries are blindly adjudicated by some of the foremost leaders in the visual and literary arts. Jurors look for works that exemplify the Awards' core values: originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. There were a total of 3,800 entries in the competition, only 634 of those entries were adjudicated into the Scholastic Regional Art Show. The Gold or Silver Key Award winners' art can be seen in a virtual exhibition showcased on the Rubell Museum's website.
