Writing & Art challenge: Extended Deadline is 5/20

FB cover photo_legends and heroesWe have extended the schedule for this year’s Writing and Art Challenge until May 20, 2016. Entries will be accepted at any time through that date from Pine Ridge youth, through age 24.

Although we have some WONDERFUL entries already, we want to ensure that ALL students and ALL young people who want to enter have that chance.

Our flyer this year was formatted through a new program and we did not realize that it was a huge file. As a result, our early notices of the challenge did not make it through the spam filters of all schools and only a few schools received our early notices.

ENTRIES are now DUE on FRIDAY MAY 20, 2016. 

TOP POINTS TO KNOW:
  • There are three age categories: Middle School, High School and Young Adult (through age 24).
  • There are great CASH PRIZES for YOU and the SCHOOLS of some winners!
  • The JUDGES this year are particularly AMAZING. This is YOUR chance to inspire them!
  • The theme this year is FUN: Who doesn’t admire a historic or local LEGEND or HERO? This is your chance to write them a letter, create a story, write a poem OR send them a message or include their message in a piece of artwork. (Art entries are judged on concept so don’t think you need the top of the line equipment because — you don’t! Last year one of the Grand Prize entries was drawn in pencil.)
