Welcome to the 2013-2014 Inspirations Art Program. We are very excited by the theme for this year (My Best Day Ever) and know the students will create work that will astound us all. Here are a few notes to bear in mind as you conduct this program at your school.
The school level competition needs to be completed by 31 January 2014. This can be done anytime between now and then. The first and second place winners in each category and at each age level need to be sent to the school hosting your regional levels. The regional awards presentations will be held on 28 February 2014. The first and second place winners in each category and at each age level need to be sent to the school hosting the state levels. The state awards presentation will be held on 28 March 2014.
In order to make judging as impartial as possible please attach all entry forms to the bottom/back of the project. Names should not be visible until after the judging process is complete. If the artist wrote their name on the front of the work please cover the name using a non-permanent method.
There is a $100.00 participation fee per school. This fee is used to purchase medals and trophies at the regional and state levels. The fee is due by 25 October 2013. Please send your fee to C.S. Lewis Academy, 364 N SR 198, Santaquin, UT 84655. Be sure to note with the payment that this is for the Inspirations Art Program. Let us know if you need a payment extension.
All the rules can be found on our blog: http://charterinspirations.blogspot.com/ Please familiarize yourselves with the rules so you can pass on correct information to your students. If you have any questions, please first consult the Frequently Asked Questions section of the blog. If you still have questions you can either contact your school's Inspirations representative or leave a comment by clicking on the word "comment" under the post and leave your question there. Please include contact information and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We now have a facebook page. Updates and reminders will be posted as needed. Please “like” and share the page with your families. Questions posted there will usually be answered the same day. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Inspirations/227458810638158
We are looking for schools who would like to host either the regional levels or the state level of the competition. Please let us know if you are interested in being a hosting school. Once the fee deadline is passed, we will create regions based on what schools are participating.
Inspirations is a great program. With a little time and effort you will see your students shine and we promise you will learn from them and be amazed!
Thanks for all you do,
