We are looking forward to receiving entries from all of our Middle Schools. Please share these guidelines with staff and students:

  1. There are no real parameters on what kind of art and size, etc. Students are not confined to drawing, painting or sketching. Sculptures and other forms of art are allowed. 
  2. Exclusions: Videos will not be accepted. Photography is only encouraged if there are old photos (for example, from the Vietnam War) combined with a student’s own art.
