Sea Camp 2016 Scholarship Competition Information & Rules:
- Design a poster that illustrates your desire to attend Sea Camp.
- Poster should be on standard poster board (approximately 22”x28”). The size does not have to be exact, but please make sure it is close to these dimensions. Any color poster board is fine.
- Posters will be separated and judged in two categories:
1.) Ages 10-13
2.) Ages 14-18
- Please DO NOT write your name on the front of it.
Write your name, age, telephone number and e-mail address on the back (please print clearly).
- You can use any medium you would like on your poster (i.e. pencil, marker, paint).
- You can glue items to your poster, however you will have to roll the poster up to mail it, so keep that in mind during your design process!
Please include a written description of your poster (no more than one page, can be hand-written or typed). Lay it on top of your poster. Do not tape, staple, or glue your written description to your poster.
Place your finished product inside a mailing tube and mail it to:
