From registration to submission: A process in 4 phases
Whether two or three teachers are teaming up on the project with their class of students, one designated "Team Leader" teacher must act as the referring coordinator for the entirety of the project. The Team Leader will complete the online registration form on behalf of his/her team at the beginning of the project. S/he will also be responsible for both registering the student selected to represent his/her school and submitting that student’s work for the national poster exhibit at the end of the project.
Phase 1: Register online TODAY – Team Leader to fill out the online registration form on behalf of the team.
Phase 2: Start sending files: all students' essays and artwork to be uploaded for publication in the Storytelling Archive online.
Phase 3: Register the student selected to represent your school in the exhibition; Team Leader to register name of selected student to represent his/her school in an exhibition. Deadline: June 30, 2019.
Phase 4: Team Leader to submit the selected student’s work electronically. Remember: One single entry per school to be submitted for the National Poster Exhibition, following guidelines. Deadline for file submission: June 30, 2019.
An email confirmation will be sent to each school’s Team Leader within two days of completed submission delivery. A follow-up email will be sent after review of the submissions. Please note: it is the project leaders’ responsibility to ensure that entry rules are adhered to.
Exhibiting the work in Spring 2020:
- Because this is meant as a community project, it is strongly encouraged that all participating schools find a way to display their students’ work locally in their school or local community, as a show of unity.
- An Online Exhibition will showcase all participating schools’ entries
- A National Poster Exhibition featuring 100 posters will be held in New York City.
There will be an opening reception for the National Poster Exhibition in the Spring of 2020.
