How to Enter 

1 . SELECT YOUR ENTRIES 

The judges will focus on creativity, design layout, typography, content and overall visual impact. Select your very best! 

2 . DETERMINE YOUR ENTRY CATEGORY 

Check out the categories. Determine which category your entry should compete in. You can enter the same piece in multiple categories but the entry must be prepared for EACH CATEGORY and have a separate form for each one entered. 

3 . COMPLETE ENTRY FORM 

Each student must fill out their own entry form. Select the Entry Form link below. After typing out the entry form (no handwriting) fill out an ENTRY TAG for each submission and attach to the corresponding entry. Fugitive glue or sticky putty is the best material to use. All entries MUST have an entry tag attached to it. 

4. PREPARE YOUR ENTRIES 

  • Make copies of your entry forms for your records. 
  • Apply the ENTRY TAG to each entry with fugitive glue or sticky putty. 
  • Place your entry in a bag or envelope. 
  • For entries that do not fit in a bag, envelope, or shrink-wrapped package, send it to us in a way that will protect the entry from damage during transport. 
  • Include the completed entry form. 

5 . TURN IN YOUR ENTRIES 

Give your entries to your graphic arts teacher or professor no later than March 18.
