Special COVID-19 Individual Contests
Contest Window #1 (through April 13)

Our next contest window runs from April 14-27


Certificates are going in the mail to individual student addresses, adviser homes, or schools, as specified on the online entry form.

Congratulations to our first batch of Best of Colorado winners. New work (and a couple new contest categories) is eligible for Window #2 submissions. If you missed out on Window $#1, don’t despair. Window #2 is open now and we will offer two more opportunities, honoring excellent student work in media during the COVID-19 pandemic and remote learning.
