Publish your work, make it public, and let others enjoy what you’ve created! Scholastic Art & Writing Award-winner Olivia Murphy talks about the rewards that come from taking the risk of submitting a work for publication, "Getting published for the first time is... almost indescribable. Knowing that someone out there, anyone at all, wants to read your inner musings — it’s beyond happiness." Getting published can also help you with college and scholarship applications.
