August 25 02:57 2022

Recently, three international awards that have gained popularity in the past two years have announced the winners of 2022. They are the Futurism STEM Award in the academic category, the Dynamic Art Award (DAA) in the art category, and Cosmopolitan Writing Award (CWA) in the writing category. A number of Chinese and Asian students’ names are on the official list of winners, demonstrating strong momentum.

Futurism STEM Award( is a yearly competition that focuses on excellence in science, mathematics and technology, providing young people with the opportunity to compete in individual innovation and team research in regional and national platforms.

Dynamic Art Award( is dedicated to identifying the most accomplished young artists in the fields of visual and digital Art and providing them with opportunities for creative and professional development.

Cosmopolitan Writing Award( is dedicated to identifying the most talented and accomplished young writers in the field of literary art, and providing creative and professional support.

Obviously, students who want to apply for world-class high schools or universities not only need to meet the requirements of standardized scores, but also win the internationally recognized academic competition awards, which could be both the proof of excellent academic performance and be the important tool for application.

In the past, there were few competitions available for students prior to high school. The appearance of these three awards filled the gap in this area and are ideal for families with the goal of being admitted to Ivy League. With the experienced host teams and strict selection standards, these awards have been able to garner public attention among the large variety of events at home and abroad.

It is important to note that achieving “Ivy League” goals is not something that can be accomplished overnight but requires long-term preparation. If they move backwards from the goal to the early stage, they can start planning from an early age.
