The World Would Be A Better Place If ...
The only due date that State sets is the one for Region to turn their entries in to State - Thurday, January 29th. Working together, Regions, Councils and School PTAs will set their own dates according to what works best for you. Please consider that it can take a couple of weeks to collect, catalog and judge artwork and give yourselves enough time to do so.
Recommended due dates are:
Schools - Sometime in October
Councils - Sometime in November
Regions - Sometime in December
Each student/parent must fill out and sign a Student Entry Form and an Arts Category Form (ie: Music Composition) that has the Artist Statement and required information.
A Consent Form is needed if the student creating the art asks other students to be a part of their entry (ie: Film Production, Dance Choreography). Please see Consent Form Guidelines on page 2 of the Consent Form for more information.
Students need information from both the General Participation Rules and the specific Arts Category which they plan to enter artwork.
