Inspirations

It’s time your creative juices flowing! The theme for Inspirations 2012-2012 is Beauty is. . . .
Attached is an entry form, and below are the rules
Entries can be submitted in the following categories: 2-D art, 3-D art, music, theater, film, literature, dance, digital art, and photography.

All projects are due on Tuesday Oct. 16th!

General Rules
Every child can submit one entry for each of the nine categories at the school level. So every child could have nine different entries. Each entry must be accompanied by an Inspirations Entry Form.
The first and second place winners in each category and age group will be sent on to the regional competition.
All participants are required to fill out, in its entirety, and sign the Inspirations’ Entry Form. Students who have not completely filled out the form will not be eligible for the program. In situations where a student cannot fill out the entry form or write legibly, a parent can fill out the form and sign her/his child’s name.
Each entry must be the original work of one student only. They may not have assistance from teachers, parents, or friends unless there is a special case (such as for someone with a visual or physical disability). Because the program is designed to encourage and recognize each student’s individual creativity, help from an adult or collaboration with other students is not allowed.
All of the entries must be original works. Use of copyrighted material is prohibited. Do not borrow from copyrighted material. Plagiarism is defined as taking and using another person’s ideas or writings or inventions as one’s own. Plagiarized entries will be disqualified and returned to the student.
Entries must be related to the yearly theme. There is no wrong way to interpret the theme.
Each category has some basic rules that are included in this handout. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Inspirations advisor at your school.
Students have the option of placing the title of their work on the Official Entry Form and answering a few questions about how they created the work as indicated by the arts area rules.
ALL ENTRIES WILL BE JUDGED ACCORDING TO INTERPRETATION OF THE THEME, CREATIVITY AND ORIGINALITY, AND ARTISTIC MERIT.
WORKS NOT ACCEPTED
*Artwork that is inappropriate, or contains any objectionable material.
*Reproductions and enlargements of other artwork.
AGE DIVISIONS

Basket Auction Fundraiser

The Basket Auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year. All money earned goes toward improvements in our school, such as wireless learning technology and dictionaries in 5th grade, the School Reach parent notification system, assistive reading technology for beginning readers, drum kit and performance technology for the music department, advanced literature to facilitate integration of subjects with reading, additional literature for beginning readers, camcorders for Middle School technology classes, and school bus for field trips (all improvements listed from the 2011-2012 school year).

 To participate in the Basket Auction, families are encouraged to donate a “basket” or item for the auction. These baskets can have a theme (such as movie night, game night, birthday party, kids crafts, chocolate, books, Christmas, health and beauty, etc). Donations do not have to be in a basket and are tax deductible.

 If you have any questions or would you like to volunteer, please call Mrs. Riggs at riggsclan7@gmail.com.

We will start accepting baskets or other donations at the beginning of October!
